188 kbytes/s = 1.5 Mbits/s

1.5Mbps equates to about 188Kb/s smile

Errrr!
188KB/s. Or arguably 188kB/s.

You confuse the issue by getting it wrong. Neither is the "about" appropriate. "Exactly" is the only word, given that rounded figures are being used.

Just because the OP used the wrong capitalisation that doesn't excuse you.

1 Byte (B) = 8 bits (b)

As long as you meant Steam was reporting 188K Bytes/s.

1999: Freeserve 48K Dial-Up => 2005: Wanadoo 1 Meg BB => 2007: Orange 2 Meg BB => 2008: Orange 8 Meg LLU BB => 2010: Orange 16 Meg LLU BB
