    56k moves information at a maximum space of 56 kilobytes per second (kps)

    1,000 kps so 1 mbps.  That is 56,000 times faster than then 56K

    100 mbps would be 100 times faster then thatt.  Or about 56,000,000 times faster than 56kps

    The different between dial up and broadband is night and day.

    hold up it is 2021 and your still rocking the 56k modem? you have to stay in the country. also to answer your question. get broadband. it is more stable.  what do you do when someone calls that number GET DISCONNECTED. so go with brodband.

    28.8Kbps = 28,800 bps

    56Kbps = 56,000  bps

    100Mbps = 100,000,000 bps

    100Mbps is 1785 x faster than 56Kbps

    Break out your calculator and do the math.

    100,000,000 / 56,000 = 1785.7 times as fast.


    100,000,000 / 28,800 = 3472.2 times as fast
