Also to know is, what unit is used to measure Internet speed?
Internet speed is measured in megabits(Mb)per second. It is often abbreviated as “Mbps.” Abit isa binary digit, or a small unit ofcomputerizeddata.
Beside above, what is the speed of modem? Dial-up modems can reach download speedsof56 kbps. DSL modems can download at speeds up to10mbps (megabits per second). Cable modems can reachatheoretical download speed of 30 mbps, but theactualspeed will almost always be lower because bandwidthisshared by other users.
Also question is, how is modem speed measured?
bps : How fast the modem can transmit andreceivedata. At slow rates, modems are measured interms ofbaud rates. The slowest rate is 300 baud (about 25 cps). Athigherspeeds, modems are measured in terms ofbitsper second (bps).
How is data speed measured?
Measurements of Data Speed Data transfer speeds canbemeasured in bits per second, or in bytes per second. Abyteis (generally) 8 bits long.
