Download Time Calculator is a small web tool that allows you, in a practical and fast way, to calculate the time it takes to download a network resource locally.
The web is full of services designed to evaluate the download speed (and upload) of our Internet connection such as Speedtest or FAST but knowing the performance of your home (or business) connection is not always enough to efficiently use telematics resources.
If we want to know the time it takes to download a large amount of data from the Internet, as an alternative to manual calculations we will have to turn to a site like Download Time Calculator (DTC). The use of the web tool is simple and essential: just set, by using the buttons , and – or by typing a number manually, the download speed of our line in the first form (in Kbps, Mbps or Gbps), the size of the content to download (MB, GB or other) and press the button “ Calculate “ .
For example, if we want to know in advance the download times of the Steam version of DOOM, a “package” weighing 55 Gigabytes, we can set the speed of our connection (75 Mbps in this case), indicate in 55 GB the size of the “thing” to download and then press Calculate. The result will be shown immediately below the download configuration form.
The values returned by Download Time Calculator are obviously theoretical; the download times can also vary significantly due to lag, server performance from which we are downloading or even for the current quality of our connection. None the among others, knowing in advance how long it will take to “monopoly” the Internet connection provides nothing short of useful information to carefully plan the most demanding download operations.
