Hi i was wondering Prior to downloading a file, that is say... 30mb how can you figure out the time its going to take b4 the file is dwnloaded? If using a speed of about 28.4kb/s (i think thats mine, i used a bandwith checker) i think you have to divide the size and the speed by 10 so you get the size in bytes and the connection speed you divide by 10 to get the transfer rate

So i think its something like 28.4/10=2.84
30 /10=3

then you multiply both values and then divide it by 60 so you get the time.

Please im pretty darn sure ive got this wrong and i would like to know how to do it, please help

( 30.000/28.4 ) / 60 = dl time in mins = 30.000 / (28.4 x 60 ) = around 17 mins :)
