Maybe I'm missing something here, but last I checked a 1mbit link should get
a maximum of 131072 bytes per second.  In my book, a megabit is 1/8 of a
megabyte, which is 1024k, which makes a megabit 128k, which makes it 131072
bytes.  Of course, I could be wrong and we really do count bandwidth with a
megabit as 125k, but that doesn't make any sense, and even if we did, a
kilobyte is still 1024 bytes, and that would make maxbytes 128000.
