# Data Rate Conversion: Mbps to KBps, KBps to Mbps

Use the **online** conversion calculators to convert between Megabits per second (Mbps) and Kilobytes per second (KBps).

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
