You may want to include a link to this page on the wiki for people to
refer to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binary_prefix

And when describing bandwidth and transfer amounts, ensure use
of the speed unit "bps" (or bit[s]/s) in conjunction with the 'Decimal SI'
multipliers shown in the upper right hand table on this page. Monthly
transfer amounts in bytes are just bps divided by 8 and extended. ie:
80,000,000bps = 80Mbps = 10MBps = 25,920,000MB/30day
100,000,000bps = 100Mbps = 12.5MBps = 32,400,000MB/30day

Anyone using the 'Binary IEC/JEDEC' multipliers for bandwidth or
transfer should be shot :)
