But finding the right price for speed (among other things) is impossible with different companies showing different symbols.

kbit, kb/s, mbps, kbps, meg, megabit, M, KB/s Kbit, and so forth. I have searched google and found nothing useful, and wikipedia seems to have to much details on this that I don't understand.

Can anyone give a simple explanation and chart maybe. What each one is equal to and how many of each is equal to the next? Please and thanks.
