How Long Will It Take To Upload My Files?

Ordering Process
It depends on the type of connection you have to the Internet. Here are some formulas you can use to make a rough estimate.
    b = bits (there are eight bits to a byte)
    B = bytes (file sizes are normally expressed in bytes)
    Kb = kilobits = thousands of bits
    Kb/s = kilobits per second = thousands of bits per second
    Mb = megabits = millions of bits
    Mb/s = megabits per second = millions of bits per second
    MB = megabytes = millions of bytes
  • 56k dial-up modem -- upload and download 3.0 min per MB
  • DSL/ADSL -- upload 2 MB per minute [approximately 260 Kb/s]; download 10 MB per minute [approximately 1,300 Kb/s]
  • standard cable (1.5 Mb/s system) -- upload 2 MB per minute [approximately 260 Kb/s]; download 10 MB per minute [approximately 1,300 Kb/s]
  • high speed cable (3.0 Mb/s system) -- upload 4 MB per minute [approximately 512 Kb/s]; download 20 MB per minute [approximately 2,600 Kb/s]
Note: Internet connections can vary greatly. These estimates assume an 85% efficient connection, which is about average.
