## Bytes per Second (Bps) Versus Bits per Second (bps) - Comparison

Bytes per Second and Bits per Second are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate.

Both Bytes per Second and Bits per Second are the "basic" units. One Byte is equal to 8 bits. There are 0.125 Byte in one Bit. Find more details on below table.

Bytes per Second (Bps) Bits per Second (bps)
Bytes per Second (Bps) is a unit of measurement for data transfer bandwidth. It measures the number of Bytes that can be transferred in one Second. Bits per Second (bps) is a unit of measurement for data transfer bandwidth. It measures the number of Bits that can be transferred in one Second.

## Bytes per Second (Bps) to Bits per Second (bps) Conversion Formula and Steps Bps to bps Calculator Tool allows you to easily convert from Bytes per Second (Bps) to Bits per Second (bps). This converter uses the below formula and steps to perform the conversion.

The formula of converting the Bytes per Second (Bps) to Bits per Second (bps) is represented as follows :

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

FORMULA

Bits per Second = Bytes per Second x 8

Example : If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 1 Bytes per Second (Bps) to Bits per Second (bps) will be processed as below.

1. = 1 x 8
2. = 8
3. i.e. 1 Bps is equal to 8 bps.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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

### Unit Definitions

#### Byte

A Byte is a unit of digital information that typically consists of 8 bits and can represent a wide range of values such as characters, binary data and it is widely used in the digital world to measure the data size and data transfer speed.

#### 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.
