    Hello everybody.
    I am on my way on CCNA module 4 WAN technologies and I have got a question.
    On the online material and on the book it states and I quote "X.25 networks are usually low capacity, with a maximum of 48 kbps".
    So when I am doing this interactive media activity I was presented with this affirmation and I quote "only operates at speeds of 64kbps or less" to which I answered FALSE and my answer was wrong. I have goggled it and in Wikipedia it does mention 64kbps.
    My question is, which one is correct? 48kbps or 64kbps?
    Thanks in advance everybody.

    Er - not sure I understand what you are saying. 48kbps *is* less than 64kbps, so you should have said TRUE!

    48kbps was fairly typical for X.25.

    Hello mate.
    In this case I must say then that it was the way I have interpreted the affirmation and for me when it says runs at 64kbps or less, yes I would say true for the less bit but false for the bit where it says runs at 64kbps which doesn't. I guess it's one of those trick ones.
    Cheers mate.

    You need to brush up on logic a bit (no offence :p ).

    "64kbps or less" means either 64kbps *or* less than 64kbps. The OR should be taken as a 'logical OR'.

    So the answer is TRUE both ways.

    If the maximum is *48kbps* then the first *true* is not correct, as it cannot run at 64kbps.
