Default ISP terminologies that are important to know

Before choosing a high-speed internet provider there are a few terminologies that you should be aware of.
Here are some of the ISP terminologies that are important to know to estimate the speed of the internet plan you choose:
Mbps: Megabits per second. A bit is one-eighth of a byte, so it would take an estimated eight seconds to transfer a 1MB file using a 1Mbps internet connection.
Gbps: Gigabits per second. This is equivalent to 1,000Mbps.
Speed and bandwidth: Increasing the same means- the rate of data transfer is the same but more data can be transferred simultaneously, meaning less waiting time for you when you’re downloading or uploading.
Download speed and upload speed: The download speed is how fast you can pull data from the server to you. The upload speed is how fast you send data from you to others
Hope this helped!
