Convert Mbps to Bps, Bps to Mbps - Data Rate Conversion (Decimal)

Use these online calculators to convert between Megabits per second (Mbps) and Bytes per second (Bps). These Data Rate conversion calculators provide a quick and easy way to convert:

  • Megabits per second to Bytes per second (Mbps to Bps)
  • Bytes per second to Megabits per second (Bps to Mbps)

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

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

Conversion Calculators

Enter your value in one of the conversion calculators below to convert Megabits to Bytes per second or convert Bytes to Megabits per second.

How to convert Bytes to Megabits (per sec): Use the conversion calculator on the right titled "Convert Bytes to Megabits (per sec)". Enter a value in the Bps field and click on the "Calculate Mbps" button. Your answer will appear in the Mbps field.

Conversion Definitions

The following is a list of definitions relating to conversions between Megabits per second and Bytes per second.

What is a Megabit per second (Mbps)?

A Megabit per second is a unit used to measure data transfer rates. It is based on "Decimal multiples of bits" (not to be confused with "Binary multiples of bits"). Since it is based on "Decimal multiples of bits", 1 Megabit per second is equal to 1,000,000 bits per second. The symbol for Megabit per second is Mbps or Mb/s or Mbit/s.

What is a Byte per second (Bps)?

A Byte per second is a unit used to measure data transfer rates. It is based on "Decimal multiples of Bytes" (not to be confused with "Binary multiples of Bytes"). Since it is based on "Decimal multiples of Bytes", 1 Kilobyte per second is equal to 1,000 Bytes per second. The symbol for Byte per second is Bps or B/s.

Understanding the Data Rate Units

This table provides a summary of the Data Rate units.

Unit Symbol Description
bits per second bps or b/s or bit/s  
Kilobits per second Kbps or kb/s or kbit/s 1 Kbps = 1,000 bps
Megabits per second Mbps or Mb/s or Mbit/s 1 Mbps = 1,000 Kbps
Gigabits per second Gbps or Gb/s or Gbit/s 1 Gbps = 1,000 Mbps
Terabits per second Tbps or Tb/s or Tbit/s 1 Tbps = 1,000 Gbps
Petabits per second Pbps or Pb/s or Pbit/s 1 Pbps = 1,000 Tbps
Bytes per second Bps or B/s 1 Bps = 8 bps
Kilobytes per second KBps or KB/s 1 KBps = 1,000 Bps
Megabytes per second MBps or MB/s 1 MBps = 1,000 KBps
Gigabytes per second GBps or GB/s 1 GBps = 1,000 MBps
Terabytes per second TBps or TB/s 1 TBps = 1,000 GBps
Petabytes per second PBps or PB/s 1 PBps = 1,000 TBps
