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

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.

A Kilobyte 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 Kilobyte per second is equal to 1,000 Bytes per second. The symbol for Kilobyte per second is KBps or KB/s.

This table provides a summary of the Data Rate units.

Unit | Symbol | Description |
