Common Internet speed Mb or MB

Do Internet company's usually advertise their Internet speed in MB or mb?

For example I have 10 for a speed, but I'm not sure if that's in Mb or MB. I'm in a rural area, so we don't have fiber or anything.

The advertise in mb (megabits). So say for instance an ISP is advertising for 20mb. The actualy speed you would be getting would be 2.0MB/second.

mb=megabits
MB=megabytes

Hope this helps.

Just a minor adjustment. The actual speed would be 2.5MB/second instead of 2.0MB/second. Sorry about that
