    Speedy Package is a same-day package delivery service that operates in Chicago. Each package has a shipping label that is attached to the package and is also electronically scanned and entered into Speedy's data network when the package is picked up and when it is delivered. The electronic labels are transmitted via a device that operates on a cell phone network.

    Assuming that each label is 1000 bytes long, how long does it take to transmit one label over the cell phone network, considering that the cell phone network operates at 14 kbps (14,000 bits per second) and that there are 8 bits in a byte?
