Computer math...KB to GB

Ok..I upload at 150KB/ many gigs is that in an hour? If my math is right, its something like 3.29gb/hr. Seems high to me.

1 Kb = 9.53674316 ◊ 10-7 Gb

150 Kb = 0.000143051147 Gb

0.000143051147 Gb/sec * 3600 sec/hour = 0.51498412 Gb/hour

552,960,000 Bytes/hr @ 150 KB/s

So about 530ish MB/hr (considering 536,870,912 = 512 MB)

KB = 1,024 Bytes * 150 = 153,600 Bytes * 60 seconds = 9,216,000 Bytes/Minute * 60 minutes = 552,960,000 Bytes/Hour

Now are we talking bits or bytes here because as you can see there is a difference?

150 (Kb / s) (kilobits/second) = 0.514984131 Gb / hour (gigabits/hour)
150 (Kb / s) (kilobits/second) = 0.0643730164 GB / hour (gigabytes/hour)
150 (KB / s) (kilobytes/second) = 4.11987305 Gb / hour (gigabits/hour)
150 (KB / s) (kilobytes/second) = 0.514984131 GB / hour (gigabytes/hour)

You can just type these conversions into google and it will solve them for you. Copy and paste the following into a search if you don't believe me.

150KB/s to GB/hour
