BTW, the search function on this forum sux. Use google instead; like this:

Just to be pendantic, the speeds that you quote are Bytes not bits - so 2500 MB/s not Mb/s. Makes a difference. 8 times difference.

Network speeds (LAN and WAN) are generally measured in bits, storage transfer rates are usually measured in Bytes.
Just for added confusion, memory transfer rates are also usually quoted in Bytes.
