Does 512 speed means 10x of 56k dialup


#1

hi,i am thinking about 512k ptcl.i need to know if

512kb speed means 10x of 56kb dialup.

on 56k i download approx 10mb/hour and upload is 6 to 7/hour.

will 512 give download of 100mb/hour and upload of 60,70/hour.

regards,

noobie.

Yes thats about. In fact you could probably expect a bit higher speeds, with 150-170 Mb/hour download.

I'm on 512k connection and I download 100 mb in 30-35 minutes on 60 KB/s

here's how to calculate

determine what speed you will get on that connection

for a average 512 kbps connection it would be 55 KB/s

so now take that 55 multiply it by 60 two times (first to get data downloaded in minutes and then hours) and then divide by 1024 (to get the result in MBs)

55x60x60/1024=193 MB/s hour

and ptcl 512 Kbps conections download speed is AFAIK around that
