That's true for the first megabyte (or whatever your smallest unit + 2 is). It's 2.4% for the first megabyte, then it goes up to 4.6% which is (1-(0.97.6^2)) up to a gigabyte, then 6.9% and so on.

You can see that the proportion must change since when you're talking about bytes there's no discrepancy between the two.
