High speed internet connectivity is a basic need in current days.
Most of us are paying a big amount of money but not getting good internet speed as it should be.Today we are going to discuss about internet speed theory and its checking procedure.normally we are purchasing internet speed in term of Mb = mega bits. Downloading speed for 1Mb connection is equal to 128KB/sec
1Mb connection = 128 KB
2Mb connection = 128*2 =256KB
3Mb connection = 128*3 =384KB
4Mb connection = 128*4 =512KB
These values are theoretical and for practical value,you should reduce these values about 10%
for 1Mb connection =128 –10% =115.2 KB
2Mb connection =256 –10% =230 KB
115.5 KB and 230 KB are practical values for your 1Mb and 2Mb connections.
Now problem is this how to check speed?
We will test it by using two methods.
Do one thing before testing,close all internet related applications like downloading ,internet streaming ,Windows updates and etc.
1-You can check it by using online SPEED TEST tool(It will show you speed in Mb)
2-By downloading multiple files (video,software and etc)at the same times from multiple sites (not from one site). It will show u downloading speed of different files in KB. You have to add all theses values for a combine downloading speed.
