"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Mbps - do you mean megabytes or megabits?
Ray PaseurCommented:
With the commonly accepted terminology this should be OK.

<?php // demo/temp_itnc.php

// SEE
// REF

$bytes = 50000000;
echo bs_to_mbps($bytes);

function bs_to_mbps($bytes, $precision=2)
    $mbps = $bytes / 125000;
    return number_format($mbps,$precision);
