Actually you have it wrong here, no offense intended. It's a common misconception that bandwidth should be multiplied by 1024. Only memory should be calculated that way, not bandwidth.

1GB = 1000MB = 1,000,000KB
Depends on if you are talking about megabytes or megabits.

If he's referring to Gigabytes, then he's right because it means what it means no matter what the median of transfer. If he's referring to gigabits, then 1 gigabyte is 8 gigabits.

1GB = 8 gb
