It's not accurate all the time. It depends on many factors like other program using the bandwidth and stuff like that. Even your antivirus doing automatic update in background might give you a lower result.

Also when your ISP says you will have 8 Mbps speed they mention UPTO 8Mbps not EXACTLY 8 Mbps.

Haven't lagged unless it was because of the host, never while I hosted.

ISP's quote you theoretical speeds. that's basically down to the box around the corner.

and anyway, it's mostly to do with line noise/quality, not sheer speed. anything over 1MB/sec (around 100K/sec) will do for XBL. just make sure your line's solid and you don't live too far from the server or mirror.

that's MS's achilles heel - there isn't enough pipe i guess around the globe to make everyone happy.

1MB/sec (around 100K/sec)


In other words, 1 MB = 100 KB?

But this says otherwise: http://www.google.ca...:en-US:official

Or am I misunderstanding.

No, a 1Mb/s connection will get you between a 100-125KB/s download speed.

1MB = 1024KB though most places just use 1000KB

1Mb = 1/8MB

So, the theoretical download speed of an 8Mb/s connection is 1MB/s, however, actual speeds tend to be between 850-900KB/s

When school (university) is in session, typical speeds are about 12Mbps down in the ResHalls. If for some reason I'm in the reshalls when school isn't in session, it can get up to 30Mbps. At home, I get 3Mbps. I don't experience network related lag at any of those places.
