Based on the provided diagram and steps outlined earlier, the formula for converting the Gigabit (Gbit) to Kilobyte (kB) can be expressed as follows:

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA kB = Gbit x 10002 ÷ 8

Now, let's apply the aforementioned formula and explore the manual conversion process from Gigabit (Gbit) to Kilobyte (kB). To streamline the calculation further, we can simplify the formula for added convenience.


Kilobytes = Gigabits x 10002 ÷ 8


Kilobytes = Gigabits x (1000x1000) ÷ 8


Kilobytes = Gigabits x 1000000 ÷ 8


Kilobytes = Gigabits x 125000


Example : By applying the previously mentioned formula and steps, the conversion from 1 Gigabit (Gbit) to Kilobyte (kB) can be processed as outlined below.

  1. = 1 x 10002 ÷ 8
  2. = 1 x (1000x1000) ÷ 8
  3. = 1 x 1000000 ÷ 8
  4. = 1 x 125000
  5. = 125,000
  6. i.e. 1 Gbit is equal to 125,000 kB.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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

Unit Definitions

What is Gigabit ?

A Gigabit (Gb or Gbit) is a decimal unit of digital information that is equal to 1,000,000,000 bits and 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 gibibit (Gibit) is used instead.
