converting kilobytes to hours or a time format

Postby grneyes312 » Tue Jun 25, 2013 6:18 pm

OK, I have a question - on a cell phone bill under your data usage - it is in kilobytes. My question is how do you convert that into a measurement of time - say for example if you have 3,262,554 kilobytes - how many hours, days, etc does that equal too???

If the data transfer rate were fixed and stable you could calculate the time needed to transfer this amount of data. Though in real life it's hardly possible as the actual download speed varies a lot depending on many conditions.

Consider a similar question: if you traveled on your car, say, 14,871 miles - how many days, hours, etc. it took? The answer depends on many things: where did you travel (highway or rural roads?), where there traffic jams, what was your car condition, what were your driver experience and habits, etc.
