I intentionally left them exactly as they were before. That should
be done as a separate cleanup but is not really something I'm keen
to tackle because you'd have to look into each programme to find out
whether it is bits or bytes and kilo or kibi. I'd guess there are plenty
more of these too.

For bandwidth, bits rather than bytes is actually fairly likely.
