How long will it take to download

October 1, 2012

1 mbps connection = 1 million bits per sec = 1,000,000 bits per sec

and 1 MB data = 1024 KB = 1024×1024 B = 1024x1024x8 bits = 8,388,608 bits

So in a 1mbps connection, 8,388,608 / 1,000,000 = 8.389 aprox sec time will take per 1 MB data

So in 1 mbps connection, 60/8.389 = 7.15 MB per Minute should be downloaded theoretically.

In reality lets say roughly 5 – 6 MB per Minute.

That’s a rough conclusion for newbies.
