# Convert Mbps to KBps, KBps to Mbps - Data Rate Conversion (Decimal)

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

- Megabits per second to Kilobytes per second (Mbps to KBps)
- Kilobytes per second to Megabits per second (KBps 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 Definitions

The following is a list of definitions relating to conversions between Megabits per second and Kilobytes 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 Kilobyte per second (KBps)?

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.

### 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 |
