Re: Netflix bandwidth - Is 1GB/hr at HD accurate? I'm not trying to pick a fight, but people will be misled.
Microsoft operating systems use 1024 for file sizes.
Memory uses 1024.
Hard drives use 1000 - there was quite a lawsuit over this.
All communications uses 1000. A T-1 line 1.544 Mbits, exactly 1,544,000. Same for the all Ethernets.
Fiber speeds use 1000.
When you buy a circuit it is specified in 1000's and the usage is billed in 1000's.
You can count on Comcast's cap as being 250*1000*1000*1000 Bytes.
I believe I got the abbreviations wrong in my earlier post.
1024*1024*1024 is GiBi.
