File Transfer Time

you can use the following formula to calculate the file transfer time:

TT = FS / TS

  • TT = Transfer time
  • FS = File size (units- KB, MB, GB)
  • TS = Transfer speed (units- Mbps, Kbps)

How to calculate file transfer time?

Here, a step-by-step process calculate the file transfer time

  • First, Determine the file size (KB, MB, GB and TB)
  • Next, Determine the transfer speed in
  • Finally, file size divided by transfer speed

Note- Make sure to use consistent units for the file size and transfer speed. For example, if the file size is in megabytes (MB) and the transfer speed is in megabits per second (Mbps), you may need to convert one of them to match the units.

1 byte = 8 bits.

Solved Example

Example- A file with a size of 200 megabytes (MB) and the transfer speed of the network is 30 megabits per second (Mbps). then calculate the file transfer time

Solved-

Given, File size = 200 MB = 200* 8 * 1024 * 1024 = 1677721600 bits

File transfer time in seconds = File size / ( transfer speed * 1000000)

File transfer time = 1677721600 / (30 * 1000000) = 55.92 seconds

File transfer time = 55.92 seconds

It will take approximately 56 seconds to transfer a 200 MB file with a 30 Mbps speed.
