so we have..
GB meaning 1,000MB

GiB meaning 1,024MiB?

Is why my provider are not in the wrong for adverting the specs advertised? As "GB" technically does means 1,000MB?
Technically, yes -- especially if the OS is also using GB for disk and file size. At these sizes it doesn't matter much. But if you start purchasing storage in the terabyte range its good to ask the provider
