Distinction between upload and download speeds

While signing up for business broadband deal, the service provider will always show a download speed that is expected to be delivered from the package.

It is an electronic way to measure data, it is a medium to determine the size of the particular file on the PC such as standard MP3 will be large up to 4MB.

Internet speeds are calculated not in megabytes but in megabits per second. For example, an advertised speed of a broadband deal may be of 8MB, this implies that the user can download file at the speed of 8 megabits or 1megabytes per second from the internet. It is important to know this distinction in order to measure the size of the file in megabytes.
