Lounge - Time it takes to send Xbits over 250(buad rate)

Asked By Tom Taylor on 15-Feb-12 11:34 AM
Can someone tell me how long it will take to send bits over a certain buad rate ? 


To be specific 

10Mbps
500Kbps
250Kbps
20Kbps

Here is a tranfer rate calculator.  The Bits per seconds (bps) is the baud rate and can be seen as the first input.

So, @250 bps /baud rate = 0.00025 Mb is transferred per second. So it would take 40000 seconds to transfer 10Mbps. 

Does it tally?
