Use the below formula to convert from Bits Per Second to Kilobits Per Second.

kbps = bps / 1000

Follow below steps to convert from Bits Per Second (bps) to Kilobits Per Second (kbps).

  1. STEP 1 → Kilobits Per Second = Bits Per Second / 1000
  2. STEP 2 → Kilobits Per Second = Bits Per Second x (1 / 1000)
  3. STEP 3 → Kilobits Per Second = Bits Per Second x 0.001

Example : Detailed conversion steps from 10 bps to kbps, will look like below.

  1. = 10 / 1000
  2. = 10 x (1 / 1000)
  3. = 10 x 0.001
  4. = 0.01
  5. i.e. 10 bps is equal to 0.01 kbps.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

You can use above formula and steps to convert Bits Per Second to Kilobits Per Second using any of the programming language such as Java, Python or Powershell.

Conversion Units

Definition : Bit

A Bit (short for "binary digit") is the basic unit of information in computing and digital communications. It is a binary value, meaning it can have one of two values: 0 or 1. Bits are used to represent data in computers and other electronic devices. They are the building blocks of digital information, and are used to store, transmit, and process data.

Definition : Kilobit

A Kilobit (kb or kbit) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1000 bits. It is commonly used to express data transfer speeds, such as the speed of an internet connection and to measure the size of a file. In the context of data storage and memory, the binary-based unit of Kibibit (Kibit) is used instead.

Python Code for bps to kbps Conversion

You can use below code to convert any value in Bits Per Second to Kilobits Per Second in Python.

bitsPerSecond = int(input("Enter Bits Per Second: "))
kilobitsPerSecond = bitsPerSecond / 1000
print("{} Bits Per Second = {} Kilobits Per Second".format(bitsPerSecond,kilobitsPerSecond))

The first line of code will prompt the user to enter the Bits Per Second as an input. The value of Kilobits Per Second is calculated on the next line, and the code in third line will display the result.
