Thanks for your work on the networkmanager widget.

One request, it current reports transmission speeds, in the traffic graph, in Bytes/ sec (KB/s), however it is more traditional to report transmission speeds in bits/ sec (Kb/s):


Generally one talks about Wifi as 10Mbit/s (802.11b),  or 54 Mbit/s (802.11g), or ADSL (8 Mbit/s) or ADSL2 (12 Mbit/sec).

Would you be able to switch the transmission reporting units, or at least make it a switchable option.


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Traffic graph is setup this way

Actual Results:  
Transmission speed reported in bytes per second (KB/s)

Expected Results:  
Transmission speeds reported in bits per second (Kb/s)
