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
