Understanding 768k cable modem speeds
Posted on 2003-10-25
I have 768k service, but am not sure how this translates to the spped that is shown when I download using getright.
I used to see downloads around 90Kb and then last month it went to 240Kb... I changed nothing. I had always thought 90Kb was = to the 768k I was offered. When I started recieving 200+ I began to wonder if I should be seeing 768Kb when I download.
I ran a speed test and it reported that I had a result as folows
Your download speed : 1825108 bps, or 1825 kbps.
A 222.7 KB/sec transfer rate.
Does this mean I am getting more than the 768 I am advertised or shorted...
Thanks for your time.
