pc download speed.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I was looking into my DL speed while downloading Fortnite and various other applications on my phone and my PC. While doing so I have came to the conclusion that my download speed on my pc is typically only around 2-3mbps and on my phone I have close to 15-20mbps. is their a reason this would happen?!?!

Mbps is Megabits per second

MBps is Megabytes per second

1 byte = 8 bits

1MBps = 8Mbps

2-3MBps ~= 20Mbps

Is your computer connected via an Ethernet cable or a wireless dongle?

 

Anyhow, the play store just has awesome servers. It probably has nothing to do with your computer. Try downloading the same file from the same place on both your PC and phone, and you'll see it's about the same.


I had a dream where Linus picked me up. It was wonderful.

Ethernet, and that's interesting. almost everything I do on my phone runs faster than my pc when it comes to downloads and even downloads that don't go through the play store

That's because most downloaders like the Epic Games Store, Steam, etc. display in Megabytes per second and you have to manually set them to display in megabits. You're getting the same speed on both devices just the capital B makes the difference in how fast it appears.
