Internet connection speeds are measured in bits per second. To make sure they're not confused with bytes (which we use to talk about our mobile data rates), we always use the following abbreviations in our help articles:
- kilobit = Kbps
- megabit = Mbps
- gigabit = Gbps
As for speed:
- 1024 Kbps = 1 Mbps
- 1024 Mpbs = 1 Gbps
Ting fiber Internet runs on a 1 gigabit (1 Gbps) connection and is about 20 times faster than the fastest cable Internet connections.
This table will show you, at a glance, how different Internet connection types stack up.
