Just FYI: http://www.sundance.com/pci.htm
I believe that this is MegaBytes/sec. Megabits used in telecommunications,
like modem characteristics and also RAM chips markings. In computers
used MB (MegaBytes).

  I see... a proposed answer was attached while I was doing my hunt & peck... Oh well, I'll comment on bits...

  A byte contains adjacent bits that a computer reads as a unit; 7 or 8, or more typically, 16 of them. A BIT contains one of the two binary characters, 0 and 1.

  A megabit is 1,048,576 bits (2 raised to the 20th power,) and a megabyte is that amount of bytes. Modems express the rate of data transmission as bits per second (bps), or the number of data bits sent in one second.

  A bite is a bit with an e appended, as in "off more than one can chew." Help this hopes, GBP...
