    What kind of homework question is this?
  2. Hello,

    OK, i'll do your homework for you...

    4Mbps (megabits) equals to approximately 500KB/s (kilobytes).

    100MB (Mega Bytes) equals approximately 100000 KB

    So assuming you can have a perfect transfer rate of 500KB/sec (assuming there is no TCP/IP overhead) you divide 100000KB by your 500KB/Sec transfer rate:

    100000
    /5000
    = 200 seconds

    200 seconds divided by 60 = 3.3 minutes.

    There you go. That;s it. Anyone care to correct any flaws in my calculations go ahead. I won't mind.

    Edit: Feel free to flog me for answering this guys homework question. Also I don't mind walking the plank.
