Data Rate Conversion: Mbps to Bps, Bps to Mbps

Use the online conversion calculators to convert between Megabits per second (Kbps) and Bytes per second (Bps).

Data Rate conversions are based on "Decimal multiples of the units" where:

  • 1 Kilobit per second = 1,000 bits per second
  • 1 Kilobyte per second = 8,000 bits per second
