From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  MB
  
      (Or "Mb") megabytes or megabits.  When referring to
     the size or data transfer rate of a storage device which is
     accessed in multiples of eight bits (e.g. RAM, hard disk)
     this almost certainly means megabytes, but when referring to
     the data transfer rate of a communications system it probably
     means megabits.  Some years ago, it is claimed, "MB" always
     meant megabytes and "Mb" meant megabits but recently this
     useful distinction has been lost.
