    Why Mb/s instead of MB/s on Xbox dl


    Is this done to make people think their speed is faster than it is, seeing as there is 8000 mb (megabit) in a gb. Because its not megabytes theyre showing other wise my 50gb dl would take 10 minutes not 40.

    Hi,

    I think we could do with this, both on Xbox and on the Windows store. For the moment, simply divide whatever speed is showing by 8 and that will give your speed in MB/s.

    As mentioned, Mbs is really a standard used by ISPs for download speeds so showing this via the xbox is more in line with what you would get from your ISP.

    For example people with gigabit connections are bit connections not byte, hence showing download speeds in Mbps/Gbps. A 1Gbps connection is ~120MBps

    That depends what server you make download, the trafic outage in your region to.

    Just another point to throw out there: I think 30 Mbps is easier to see and understand than 3.75 MBps. Its an easy way to avoid decimals.

    There isn't really a downside to using either format as they mean the same thing. Some people may not understand this, but it's really just a conversion factor depending on which is shown. While I personally would like the option to switch which units
    are shown, I don't know that it's a high priority on anyone's list at Microsoft to consider such small UI customization options.
