Gbit to MB - Conversion Formula and Steps

Gigabit and Megabyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Both are decimal units. One Gigabit is equal to 1000^3 bits. One Megabyte is equal to 1000^2 bytes. There are 0.008 Gigabits in one Megabyte. - view the difference between both units

(Decimal Unit)

The formula of converting the Gigabit to Megabyte is represented as follows :

MB = Gbit x 1000 / 8

Below conversion diagram will help you to visualize the Gigabit to Megabyte calculation steps in a simplified manner.

÷ 1000   
x 8   
Megabyte [MB]
Gigabyte [GB]
Gigabit [Gbit]
  x 1000  
  ÷ 8  

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Gigabit (Gbit) to Megabyte (MB).

  1. STEP 1 → Megabyte = Gigabit x 1000 / 8
  2. STEP 2 → Megabyte = Gigabit x 125

Example : If we apply the above steps, conversion from 10 Gbit to MB, will be processed as below.

  1. = 10 x 1000 / 8
  2. = 10 x 125
  3. = 1250
  4. i.e. 10 Gbit is equal to 1,250 MB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

You can use above formula and steps to convert Gigabit to Megabyte using any of the programming language such as Java, Python or Powershell.

Conversion Units

Definition : Gigabit

A Gigabit (Gb or Gbit) is a 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.

Definition : Megabyte

A Megabyte (MB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1,000,000 bytes (or 8,000,000 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 mebibyte (MiB) is used instead.
