## Bytes per Second (Bps) Versus Kilobytes per Second (kBps) - Comparison

Bytes per Second and Kilobytes 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 Kilobytes per Second is a "decimal" unit. One Byte is equal to 8 bits. One Kilobyte is equal to 1000 bytes. There are 1,000 Byte in one Kilobyte. Find more details on below table.

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

Based on the provided diagram and steps outlined earlier, the formula for converting the Bytes per Second (Bps) to Kilobytes per Second (kBps) can be expressed as follows:

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA kBps = Bps ÷ 1000

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

FORMULA

Kilobytes per Second = Bytes per Second ÷ 1000

STEP 1

Kilobytes per Second = Bytes per Second x (1 ÷ 1000)

STEP 2

Kilobytes per Second = Bytes per Second x 0.001

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

1. = 1 ÷ 1000
2. = 1 x (1 ÷ 1000)
3. = 1 x 0.001
4. = 0.001
5. i.e. 1 Bps is equal to 0.001 kBps.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

You can employ the formula and steps mentioned above to convert Bytes per Second to Kilobytes 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 Kilobyte ?

A Kilobyte (kB) is a decimal unit of digital information that is equal to 1000 bytes (or 8,000 bits) and commonly used to express the size of a file or the amount of memory used by a program. It is also used to express data transfer speeds and in the context of data storage and memory, the binary-based unit of kibibyte (KiB) is used instead.
