Mega-bit.org Scam Review: Disturbing Things Found
Though this site might appear legit to a newbie, the truth is that it is just a wishy washy HYIP designed in such a way to convince unsuspecting investors. Most of this scam quick-profit investment schemes are HYIPs. What is a HYIP?
It is a just a type of ponzi scheme. Initial investors only get paid when new people sign up and invest, what this means is that you are under pressure to bring in new investors so that you will get paid. As soon as the amount of new investor drops, the owners do away with the money invested, and the site is closed down since there is no longer enough money to pay initial investors. Those that benefit most times are the first investors. The system is not sustainable because it will surely shut down abruptly leaving your money trapped in the hands of the scammers that set it up initially.
Most of them provide a registration certificate and so-called evidence of payments. Don’t be deceived, anybody could get a sham address and certificate most especially from the Company House in UK which most of them use, for just £5. These companies claiming to be located in the UK or similar countries are not in actual sense located there.
Sometimes these platforms might pose as an investment platform, doubler platform or even a mining platform. Often times they might run an ads through the google ads academy or even get a youtube ads making them look legit. But the truth is that they do not have the equipment that make them what they claim to be. Rather what they do is circle the funds of investors, and when they have made a lot of unsuspecting investors trust them, they stop paying.
How To Know a SCAM HYIP
It is true that most of this high yield investment platforms look like the real deal, thus confusing us.However, there are various ways to find out if an investment platform is a lackluster HYIP or if it a trusted investment platform. Below are ways you could find out-

What Are Mbps and How Many Do I Need?
If you’ve ever shopped for an internet provider, you’ve undoubtedly seen the term “Mbps.” You’ve probably also noticed that the higher number of Mbps, the higher the price.
But why? What is Mbps, and how many do you need anyway? Mbps stands for megabits per second and is a way to measure the throughput or speed of a network. The more Mbps you have, the faster your internet.
How do Mbps work?
Every piece of media or content on the internet uses a certain amount of data, most commonly seen measured in megabytes (MB) or gigabytes (GB).
If you think those terms sound a bit like the “megabits” in Mbps, you are correct; they’re related but not the same.
1 megabyte (MB) = 8 megabits (Mb)
1 gigabyte (GB) = 1,000 megabytes (MB)
Some file types, such as text documents and PDFs, may take only a few MBs. But to download an HD movie can easily take 4 GB.
Even though Mb are significantly smaller than most file sizes, they’re how we measure how quickly those files will download and upload using your internet connection.
How many Mbps do you need?
Obviously, the faster your internet speed is, the better. But how much speed you need depends on your type of usage. People who download a lot of HD videos or upload high-resolution photos will need more Mbps than someone who just wants to surf Facebook or send emails.
Most high-speed internet plans these days start around 5–10 Mbps, which is sufficient for most everyday online activity. But remember, the more people you have using your network, the slower your internet will run, since it’s divided across multiple internet users. So if you’re part of a family of four and everyone’s going to watch Netflix at the same time on different devices, you’re going to want a higher-speed plan.

You mean what speed is your internet connection, presumably. We can’t tell you.
In real terms, 1 megabyte = 8.4 megabits. 1 gigabyte = 8590 megabits.

What Is a Megabit (Mb)?
And how does it differ from a megabyte (MB)?
A megabit is a unit of measurement for data size, most often used in discussions of data transfer. Megabits are expressed as Mb or Mbit when talking about digital storage, or Mbps (megabits per second) in the context of data transfer rates. All of these abbreviations are expressed with a lowercase ‘b.’
Megabits and Megabytes
It takes eight megabits to make a megabyte (abbreviated as MB). Megabits and megabytes sound similar and their abbreviations use the same letters but they don’t mean the same thing. It’s important to distinguish between the two when you’re calculating things like the speed of your internet connection and the size of a file or hard drive.
For example, an internet speed test can measure your network’s speed at 18.20 Mbps, which means that 18.20 megabits are being transferred every second. The same test can say that the available bandwidth is 2.275 MBps, or megabytes per second, and the values are equal. As another example, if a file you’re downloading is 750 MB, it’s also 6,000 Mb.
Bits and Bytes
A bit is a binary digit or small unit of computerized data. It’s smaller than the size of a single character in an email but, for simplicity’s sake, think of it as the same size as a text character. A megabit, then, is approximately the size of one million characters.
The formula 8 bits = 1 byte can be used to convert megabits to megabytes and vice-versa. Here are some sample conversions:
8 megabits = 1 megabyte
8 Mb = 1 MB
1 megabit = 1/8 megabyte = 0.125 megabyte
1Mb = 1/8 MB = 0.125 MB
A quick way to figure a conversion between megabits and megabytes is to use Google. Just enter something like “1000 megabits to megabytes” into the search bar.
Why It Matters
Knowing that megabytes and megabits are two different things is important mainly when you’re dealing with your internet connection. That’s typically the only time you see megabits mentioned.
For instance, if you’re comparing service provider internet speeds, you might read that ServiceA can deliver 8 Mbps and ServiceB offers 8 MBps. At a quick glance, they may seem identical and you might just pick whichever one is cheapest. However, given the conversion you now know, ServiceB speed is equal to 64 Mbps, which is eight times faster than ServiceA:
ServiceA: 8 Mbps = 1 MBps
ServiceB: 8 MBps = 64 Mbps
Choosing the cheaper service would likely mean you’d buy ServiceA but, if you needed quicker speeds, you may want the more expensive one instead. That’s why it’s important to recognize this difference.
What About Gigabytes and Terabytes?
Beyond megabits and megabytes, we enter the territory of much bigger file sizes of gigabytes (GB), terabytes (TB), and petabytes (PB), which are additional terms used to describe data storage but are much larger than megabytes. A megabyte, for example, is just 1/1,000 a gigabyte, tiny in comparison!
How to Check Your Internet Speed
Don’t take your ISP’s word for it, put your connection to the test. The easiest way is to use Ookla Speedtest, but options abound. Here’s how to see if you’re getting what you pay for.
Is your ISP delivering the data speeds you were promised? Is there even a way to find out? Should you just take their word for it? The answer to these questions, respectively, are “we’ll see,” “YEP!,” and “HELL NO!” We can say that because you have access to free tools that will clock your own personal connection.
One major tip: before you run any of these tests, be sure to 1) turn off any downloads or uploads you have going on your system and 2) deactivate your VPN software for the duration of the test; both add a lot of overhead to the connection. You’ll get a more accurate reading if the only traffic to the internet and back is from the test you’re performing.
One quick and easy way to test your internet speed is to use Ookla Speedtest, which is owned by PCMag’s parent company, Ziff Davis. It measures the time it takes for data to transfer between your computer and a remote server by way of your local ISP connection.
The real benefit in using Speedtest.net comes from creating an account. With an account, you can change settings, like picking a server for testing, and make it permanent so it’s saved for every time you visit. You can view your entire test history to see how your internet connection changes over time, which is handy if you go through an upgrade or downgrade in service and want to see the change reflected in real life, not just on a bill.
Speedtest is still handy without an account. Use the mobile apps to test on your smartphone (iOS, Android). It determines your location and pairs you to a local Speedtest server. All you have to do is click the “Go” button. The whole process should take less than a minute to complete, and you watch it unfold in real time.
After completion, view your connection’s upload and download speeds as measured in megabits per second (Mbps). You have the option to share the information via social media by clicking the buttons at the top for social media . There’s also a chain icon to grab a link you can post anywhere, as an image or weblink or even embed into a page just like this:
Run the test a few times by clicking the “Go” button again and again—you will see fluctuations in the data speed from test to test, depending on the network congestion at any given time.
Once you’ve run it a few times, put those numbers in context: click the “Results” link. Even without an account, Speedtest will let you compare your results to global average speeds. Click the tab to switch from download to upload speed. If you used more than one connection (say you went from a hotspot to home and ran tests in both locations), or used more than one connection server, click “Filter Results” to narrow down which tests/servers you want to see.
To compare your speeds with the rest of the world, go to the Speedtest Global Index, which offers average throughput for mobile and fixed broadband connections across the globe. Many ISPs run a version of Speedtest on their own servers for testing customer connections. Those tests become part of Speedtest’s dataset, which is used to create the Global Index and other things. For example, we used global dataset to determine the Fastest Free Nationwide Wi-Fi.
Other Speed Options
Speedtest is not the only game in town for measuring internet connections. There are others worth a try, and the more you test, the better your options are when you contact an ISP with complaints about your rated speed.
Netflix, for example—which has a vested interest in making sure the internet used by its customers is lightning fast—has its very own speed test. Visit FAST.com and you don’t even have to click a button. It starts an immediate download speed test. You can click for more results, get latency and upload test results, and share data on Facebook or Twitter instantly. With FAST.com, however, you can’t pick the server you test against. There is also a FAST Speed Test app for iOS and Android.
SpeedOf.Me doesn’t look as polished as Speedtest or Fast.com, but many would claim that as a selling point. This zippy little test works on mobile devices and the desktop, offers a history at the bottom if you run multiple tests, and provides an “instant look” graph as the test runs multiple passes for download and upload. It has 116 servers (and counting ) all over North America, Europe, Asia, South America, and a couple in Australia—it picks the fastest one for you, not necessarily the closest server.
Go to your search engine of choice—if those choices are Google or Bing—and search the term “speed test.” Both will pop up a test in the top of the search results.
Bing’s test even looks like a speedometer, like Speedtest. But it’s unclear who powers it, and you don’t get any options to change—you simply get quick and dirty ping (latency time in milliseconds—the time it takes for packets to travel from you to the server), download, and upload results.
Google’s test is run by Measurement Lab (M-Lab), but the results are the usual download and upload speed, with no tracking or adjustment to settings.
Don’t forget: We have a PCMag Speed Test, which you can use any time, even on a mobile device. We use the data it gathers to determine the Fastest ISPs in the US and Canada.

The Confusion of Broadband ISP Speeds – Megabits vs MegaBytes
Getting the data size or Internet transfer speed measurement for Megabits and MegaBytes or Gigabits and GigaBytes back to front is an easy mistake, albeit one that seems to have become increasingly common. But it’s also an error that gives an entirely different meaning to what you’re trying to say, so why do so many organisations and people get it wrong?
Only yesterday I was asked by a passing friend, “Keith, you amazing person and pinnacle of human wonder, any idea how I can get a better Internet speed than the 12 MegaBytes delivered by my ISP?” (I embellished a bit). Now, being polite and knowing the area, I secretly recognised that he meant Megabits and suggested some alternatives.
At the same time my inner IT demon was screaming to correct his error, perhaps by using a touch of sarcasm or something akin to, “FOOL! How dare thy confuse MegaBytes with Megabits in front of MEEE… Don’t you know that the two are fundamentally different! I shall cast thee aside, into a pit of lava no less and watch thee burn!”. Come to think of it, I like that response better.
In this instance there was no need to chastise the miscreant; after all we can’t expect everybody outside of the IT realm to understand the differences between Bits and Bytes now can we? Occasionally even I’ve type the wrong thing, it’s an easy mistake, but one that our editor Mark usually spots. But when an ISP or mobile operator gets it wrong, well that’s another story and sadly it happens rather a lot.
What’s in a letter? (8 bits = 1 Byte)
The trouble with trying to explain the difference is that we’d soon stray into the realm of basic math and I know how some people hate that, so instead we’ll keep it ultra-simple with only minimal number usage. Essentially things like Kilobits, KiloBytes, Megabits and so forth are all measures of data size on a computer, which can also be used to express the speed of an Internet / network connection.
For example, let’s say there’s a music file that you want to download and the file size is 1 MegaByte (1MB). In simple terms, 1 MegaByte = 8 Megabits, so if your broadband connection was running at 8 Megabits per second (“Mbps”) then that means you could reasonably expect to download that file in the space of a second; this could perhaps also be expressed as 1 MegaByte per second (“MBps”).
But most broadband providers tend to prefer to quote Megabits for their speeds, not least because it’s more familiar and attractive from an advertising perspective. For example, some people might think that 1MBps is slower than 8Mbps, even though they’re effectively the same, and advertisers do so love bigger numbers. So the importance of that little ‘b’ and big ‘B’ is not to be overlooked.
Now, while I’ve got you here, the same also applies between Gigabits and GigaBytes (i.e. 8 Gigabits = 1 GigaByte (GB)). But take note that transfer speeds / data sizes aren’t all based around an eight times difference, indeed it’s worth keeping in mind that around 1000 Megabits per second is equal to 1Gbps (Gigabit). But that’s another story and I don’t want to confuse matters.
The Big ‘B’alls Up
Sadly plenty of organisations and people make the same mistake as my friend because, unless perhaps you were education in IT, it’s very easy to overlook the difference between a little and big letter. Indeed it only takes one typo to completely change the meaning and over the years there have been some big errors.
ISPreview.co.uk’s Pick of the Top 5 Mistakes (Mega.. ‘bits’ and ‘Bytes’ Confusion)
At the start of last year TalkTalk’s Chief Technology Officer, Clive Dorsman, claimed that their data traffic had passed a new peak of 557GBps on New Year’s Day. After several attempts to clarify, the operator stuck to their story, although it later transpired that the updates had been posted by a PR person and in actual fact the result was 557Gbps (Gigabits) not GigaBytes. So for a brief period TalkTalk had claimed to become one of the biggest overall networks in the whole world.
The 2020 launch of the country’s first truly national 4G (LTE) based Mobile Broadband network (excluding UKBB/PCCW’s service) was marred by their website’s reference to the connection speed being listed as MB/s (MegaBytes per second) instead of Megabits. In other words, EE’s early promised average 4G speeds were fictitiously eclipsing most high-end fixed line superfast broadband connections.
Last year’s move by the European Commission to grant Major Projects Approval to the state aid supported Connecting Cumbria project in North West England expected that “a minimum of 90% of Cumbria” would be given access to broadband speeds “in excess of 30 megabytes per second (mbps)“. In this case the EC even stated “megabytes” directly, which for a period effectively promised real-world speeds of at least 240Mbps (Megabits per second) for most of the county :). Sadly they meant Megabits.
Back in 2008 we made a query to Orange UK in regards to whether or not they intended to impose a data transfer speed of just 384Kbps (Kilobits per second) on their iPhone customers, which had previously occurred in France. The response ultimately confirmed the situation but in the process referenced figures in both KiloBytes (KB) and MegaBytes (MB) instead of bits.
A promotional image supplied for EE’s new 4G+ service trial depicted the peak speed as “403MBPS“, when they should have said 403Mbps for Megabits. If it really had been 403MBPS then the Megabits performance would have equated to 3,200Mbps+. Yes please EE, we’ll take that!
We continue to see mistakes like this and no doubt there will be plenty more going forward. So here ends my brief tale of casual pedantry.. well, except for that small matter of how some ISPs reference speed simply by saying “Megs” – *sound of a head exploding*.
