    k/sec = kilobytes
    kbps = kilobits

    Bits are 8x as large as bytes, but in real life, we use Bytes

    I thought it was vice-versa. Bytes being largre than bits. I mean, If I'm getting 1500 kbps on this daikatana d/l but it also says 188 k/sec, then my guess is that bytes are bigger.

    I mean in value (numbers)...

    like 800bits = 100bytes

    8 bits = 1 byte
    therefore according to him 190KBps (kilo-bytes) that's 1520Kbps (kilo-bits)
