## Kilobits per Second (kbps) Versus Megabits per Second (Mbps) - Comparison

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

Both Kilobits per Second and Megabits per Second are the "decimal" units. One Kilobit is equal to 1000 bits. One Megabit is equal to 1000^2 bits. There are 1,000 Kilobit in one Megabit. Find more details on below table.

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

Based on the provided diagram and steps outlined earlier, the formula for converting the Kilobits per Second (kbps) to Megabits per Second (Mbps) can be expressed as follows:

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA Mbps = kbps ÷ 1000

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

FORMULA

Megabits per Second = Kilobits per Second ÷ 1000

STEP 1

Megabits per Second = Kilobits per Second x (1 ÷ 1000)

STEP 2

Megabits per Second = Kilobits per Second x 0.001

Example : By applying the previously mentioned formula and steps, the conversion from 1 Kilobits per Second (kbps) to Megabits per Second (Mbps) 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 kbps is equal to 0.001 Mbps.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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

### Unit Definitions

#### 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.
