Abstract: Let Z_{n} be the sum mod 1 of n i.i.d.r.v. and let 1[0,x](ยท) be the indicator function of the interval [0, x]. Then the sequence 1_{[0,x]}(Z_{n}) does not converge for any x. But if arithmetic means are applied then under suitable suppositions convergence with probability one is obtained for all x as well-known. In the present paper the rate of this convergence is shown to be of order n^{-1/2} (loglogn)^{1/2} by using estimates of the remainder term in the CLT for m-dependent r.v.
