Hello IT Guys,
My Provider is PLDT DSL, I have purchased 1 MB DSL Internet service which means that I have purchased 1024 kb. Unfortunately whenever I download any file it only provide 120 kb/s. So why 1 MB DSL provides only 120kb/s. why not 1024 kb/s? How this speed calculate and breaks?

Hi,
 
This is the IT explanation on this. Your Speed from the provider is 1MB right? and then how much is the speed of your client? So, this is kind of technical problem here, you don't know where your client IP is located. I will give you an example, If you were in the Philippines having a 1MB connection and your client is also in Philippines having also an 1MB connection what will happen on the upload and download files? Approximately 900 kbps or 1mb right? Why? Because this is same as point to point connection, the server and the client has a very close distance connection and they have also the same speed which is 1mb. In closing, it's just the Server and the Client issue and the distance data travel. 
 
Thanks,

The download speed that you are getting should be fairly consistent with the account that you signed up for with your internet service provider. I would take it that the 'B' in your question is a 'b' since PLDT DSL doesn't go up as high as an MB plan for consumers. You have a 1Mbps DSL plan. That's 1024 Mbps (Mega 'bits' per second). If you convert that to Kilo 'bytes', you'd get like 128 KBps. Taking into account communication overhead in the network, your download speed of 120 KBps (downloads are usually denoted in bytes and not in bits so it is in B not in b) should be just about what you'll be getting.
