Usually,the rate displays on software refers to the number of Bytes transmitted per second expressed in B (capital);
MB:Million Bytes
1M bandwidth refers:

So download speed of 1M bandwidth does not exceed 125KB per second.
2M bandwidth is 250KBps,3MP bandwidth is 375KBps.
Are you clear on Mbps,Kbps,bps,kb,mb after read above contect?
