      its good again

      well thats another day over and things are stable for the 2nd day running
      speeds all night been around 480-550 kbs. lets hope this is the start of the good times.
      just one question
      on 1 speed test it showed 4338kbps or 523kbs
      another showed 4.12mbps or 527kbs
      how do these figures work i thought that 523kbs meant a 5and a half meg line

      The 523 kbps (with a little b) is a commonly used mixup with MBps (big B)

      bits should be b and bytes should be B but they frequently get swapped over.

      523 Kilo bytes per second is 523 x8 kilo bits per second or 4.184 Megs bits per second,

      So according to that speed test (at that particular site at that particular time) it's reporting a speed of 4.183 megs.
