When in reference to download speeds that are often advertised by internet Service Providers (ISP's), such as AOL, there is a few main concerns to look at. Computers use B,KB,MB,GB,TB to abbriviate different file sizes. Most often everyone refers to 1KB meaning 1,000 Byte's or also 1 KiloByte. Sometimes people are confused with the terminology between KB and Kb, notice the upper and lowercase 'b'. Usually the difference will be between Bytes and bits. Which there are 8 bits in every byte. Bits are hardly used in everyday communication unless discussing direct storage onto harddrives. As such, generally speaking, Kb,KB,kb can mean the same thing most often KiloBytes. 1KB is technically equivalent to 1024 bytes. Thus moving up the scale 1024KiloBytes, is also called 1MegaByte,MB,Mb,mb. For an Example lets say your ISP offers 1024Kb/Seccond download speeds and a competitor is offering you 1MB/Seccond of download speeds. The Offers are technically the same. 512Kb/S Download speeds would be 0.5Mb/S Download speeds. Thus a 1Mb Download speed would be twice as good as a 512Kb download speed, since you should be able to download twice the speed.
