  • Just to make clear, do you mean Megabits (as you have written) or MegaBytes? – VBwhatnow Jan 24 '13 at 20:15

To calculate transfer time divide the amount of data by transfer speed like this:

(10 terabytes) / (60 Mbps) = 16.1817284 days
(10 terabytes) / (80 Mbps) = 12.1362963 days
(10 terabytes) / (1000 Mbps) = 23.3016889 hours

Or have google do it for you like this

    It's actually a little longer than that, as there's transmission overhead on the line as well. – Joel Coehoorn Oct 16 '10 at 23:49

WolframAlpha is great for this kind of calculations : 10 terabytes at 60mbps
