Mbit - what is it?

A bit is a unit used to measure digital information. When we refer to a Mbit or Kbit we generally mean how many bits of information per second your connection can transfer. A Kbit is 1000 bits and an Mbit is 1000 Kbits. For example, a 3 minute song in mp3 format would take roughly 25 seconds to download on a 1 Mbit connection.
