The formula of converting the Kilobits Per Second to Bytes Per Second is represented as follows :

Bps = kbps x 1000 / 8

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


Bytes Per Second = Kilobits Per Second x 1000 / 8


Bytes Per Second = Kilobits Per Second x 125

Example : If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 10 kbps to Bps, will be processed as below.

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

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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