    Default Bytes per second?

    I am confused, no surprise there!

    I was looking at alternative broadband deals, and noted the speed usage written as either Mb, or Mbps. can you tell me the difference please.

    I was looking at an 18 month fixed deal with plusnet at the average speed 10Mb. for 18.99 pm, after the 18m months expires the prices rockets up to 30 .

    At present I am paying a bit less for a higher speed on Virgin which is M54Mbps for 24 a month, with extra for phone calls but we carefully keep the bills down.

    I do not know what 54Mbps speed is but my guess is it is higher that the 10Mb, as quoted by plusnet.

    Maybe someone here can sort my brain out, the difference between Mb. and Mbps. I assume it means millibyte per second.


    But I think I would be shafted if I went over to plusnet for what seems a slower speed.
