## Bytes per Second (Bps) Versus Kilobits per Second (kbps) - Comparison

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

Bytes per Second is one of the very "basic" digital unit where as Kilobits per Second is a "decimal" unit. One Byte is equal to 8 bits. One Kilobit is equal to 1000 bits. There are 125 Byte in one Kilobit. Find more details on below table.

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

## Bytes per Second (Bps) to Kilobits per Second (kbps) Conversion - Formula & Steps

The Bps to kbps Calculator Tool provides a convenient solution for effortlessly converting data rates from Bytes per Second (Bps) to Kilobits per Second (kbps). Let's delve into a thorough analysis of the formula and steps involved.

Outlined below is a comprehensive overview of the key attributes associated with both the source (Byte) and target (Kilobit) data units.

Source Data Unit Target Data Unit
Equal to 8 bits
(Basic Unit)
Equal to 1000 bits
(Decimal Unit)

The formula for converting the Bytes per Second (Bps) to Kilobits per Second (kbps) can be expressed as follows:

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA kbps = Bps x 8 ÷ 1000

Now, let's apply the aforementioned formula and explore the manual conversion process from Bytes per Second (Bps) to Kilobits per Second (kbps). To streamline the calculation further, we can simplify the formula for added convenience.

FORMULA

Kilobits per Second = Bytes per Second x 8 ÷ 1000

STEP 1

Kilobits per Second = Bytes per Second x 0.008

Example : By applying the previously mentioned formula and steps, the conversion from 1 Bytes per Second (Bps) to Kilobits per Second (kbps) can be processed as outlined below.

1. = 1 x 8 ÷ 1000
2. = 1 x 0.008
3. = 0.008
4. i.e. 1 Bps is equal to 0.008 kbps.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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

### Unit Definitions

#### What is 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.

#### What is 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.
