Normally, the speed of a broadband connection is expressed in kbps (kilo bits per second). Sometimes, download speed is also expressed in kBps (kilo bytes per second) where 1 Byte = 8 bits. 

Speed expressed in kbps = Speed in kBps*8 

Example: If the download speed is 100 KBps (100 kilo bytes per second), we can represent it as 800 kbps (800 kilo bits per second).

Broadband Internet speed depends on many other factors also. Some of them are listed below:
  • If RAM Capacity should be 1GB(Minimum) or else Internet speed will be slow.
  • Some Virus attack may lead to Denial of the service, Antivirus updates should be in place.
  • Multiple connection on to a single router may lead to network congestion and slow down the broadband speed.
  • Physical joints should be minimized, where ever possible, splitters should be used.
  • Computer sharing should be limited, so that broadband speed will not the consumed by other PC’s. Go for higher speeds if you are having more than 2 PC’s
  • Distance from the Distribution point should be minimized as the length of the copper wire increases, Speed will be automatically reduced.
