|iT'S NOT a given. |
If I, or any other network person like me, is talking about bandwidth and he/she says, "megabytes" or "megabits" then yes, it's a given that the "ps" is there because we're talking about bandwidth. I'm guessing that since you're a layman, you wouldn't necessarily understand that.
One pkg offers speeds of 20MB
One pkg offers 16Mbps
That's confusing. Some people think, o, maybe they forgot the ps or caps don't mean anything.
I suspect most laymen wouldn't notice the differences. I personally don't understand why anybody with a grain of sense would give one rating in MB and the other in Mb. However, it could be just a typo on the part of whomever was doing the web page. Perhaps both are supposed to be one, or the other. What I do know for sure is, the norm is to use megabits per second, not megabytes when rating bandwidth. At least, I tend to think in terms of Mb's
What I do know for sure is, if you have a question about that, you should be calling comcast (as I said in my previous response) and not asking us in here. We dont' work for comcast and can't explain why they posted one as Mb and the other as MB.
It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
