1GB =1000mb

WRONG. OK first B is BYTES and b is BITS So no 1000 megaBITS does not equal 1 gigaBYTE. 1000 megaBITS =125 megaBYTES

Also it's 1024 MB = 1 GB

1024 MiB = 1 GiB. XiB/Xib is measured in 1024 increments not the 1000 (decimal) increments that are usually used in XB/Xb claims to inflate the speed (or deflate the volume) measure. Unless the measure is stated in Xi units (or there is a disclaimer that X is 1000 based) you can assume that you are getting a 1000 based measure not the accurate 1024/Xi one.
