The formula of converting the Bits Per Second to Kilobits Per Second is represented as follows :

kbps = bps / 1000

Now let us apply the above formula and see how to manually convert Bits Per Second (bps) to Kilobits Per Second (kbps). We can further simplify the formula to ease the calculation.


Kilobits Per Second = Bits Per Second / 1000


Kilobits Per Second = Bits Per Second x (1 / 1000)


Kilobits Per Second = Bits Per Second x 0.001

Example : If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 10 bps to kbps, will be processed as 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.

Definition : Kilobit

A Kilobit (kb or kbit) is a decimal 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.
