I'm not a fan of Chrome, although it is faster than IE (for me at least..).

IE: 5.91
Chrome: 6.40

Laaaaaaaaaaaaasst time you would have tried with a classic browser ..without getting a internet connection.... so it would have taken years ....would have loaded after someone advised you for a connection.... :giggling:


wata bad joke :ooh:


In India the max speed offered (to my knowledge) to Residential Users is 16Mbps...but its costs a lot...around 6000 INR/Month. I have a 2M connection which costs 500 INR/Month with 2.5GB FUP Limit.

Not for 1 gigabytes per second connection speed I think, but up to 1 gigabytes download per month.

But 5 dollar for 1 gigabytes is very cheap. I don't understand, Korean worker salary is higher than Indonesian, but how can they sell internet connection in this price ?.

That's not cheap. In the UK most plans are unlimited so you pay a fixed price a month and can download as much as you want.

Brother Aadil was correct (it is 1 gigabytes per second, not 1 gigabytes download)
South Korea has the best (and fastest) broadband connection in the world.
Their government developed very extensive fibre optic networks and subsidized initial infrastructures.

1000 bits = 1 Kb ( B-Bytes, b-bits)

1Gbps = 1000Mbps >> which is very very impressive....

:ooh:..Its 500 times faster than my connection.......I have a 2Mbps connection.

I thought, 8 bits=1 byte
1 KB=10^3 bytes = 0.93KiB
1 MB=10^6 bytes = 0.93MiB
1 GB=10^9 bytes = 0.93GiB
1 TB=10^12 bytes = 0.93TiB

Actually, I was reading again, it turned out that the commercial 1 Gbps connection is not available in Korea until 2012. Their existing broadband connection is actually 100 Mbps. However, some south koreans have posted on youtube videoclips of their downloading files at 400Mbps!



the SK government is spending 24.6 billions USD to build the 1 Gbps infrastructures.

I think Virgin in the UK are also planning 100Mbps in the coming year or so.

The line going from your house to the exchange might be missing some insulation.

Usually the connection speeds are mentioned in bits than Bytes...

Upper case - B for Bytes
Smaller case - b for bits


And wherever its refered in Bytes ........the K = 1024 (i.e. 2^10 ) >> 1KB = 1024 Bytes

and wherevr its refered in bits... the K = 1000...which is the usual K >> 1Kb = 1000 bits

More downloading.
