Did my little calculation on policy 6 and found out that 512 Kbps is 64 kB/s…
Calculations: You have a 512 Kbps connection not a 512 KBps connection. That ‘B’ makes a huge difference. 512 Kbps is 512 KiloBitsPerSecond and 512 KBps is 512 KiloBytesPerSecond. 1byte=8bits and download speed is measured in bytes not bits. So, divide 512 by 8=64 KiloBytesPerSecond. That mean you are getting the maximum speed from your internet connection.
So this is relatively slow I guess!
Now that Ntel have kicked started fully by unveiling their tariff plan and speed throttling policy, what are your views on, is it COOL or UNCOOL? Share your views via comment box below.
