## kbps to Mbps - Conversion Formula and Steps

Kilobit and Megabit are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Both are decimal units. One Kilobit is equal to 1000 bits. One Megabit is equal to 1000^2 bits. There are 1,000 Kilobits in one Megabit. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit

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

Mbps = kbps / 1000

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Kilobits Per Second (kbps) to Megabits Per Second (Mbps). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.

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

1. = 10 / 1000
2. = 10 x (1 / 1000)
3. = 10 x 0.001
4. = 0.01
5. i.e. 10 kbps is equal to 0.01 Mbps.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

#### Definition : Kilobit

A Kilobit (kb or kbit) is a 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.

#### Definition : Megabit

A Megabit (Mb or Mbit) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1,000,000 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 mebibit (Mibit) is used instead.

### Python Code for kbps to Mbps Conversion

You can use below code to convert any value in Kilobits Per Second to Megabits Per Second in Python.

kilobitsPerSecond = int(input("Enter Kilobits Per Second: "))
megabitsPerSecond = kilobitsPerSecond / 1000
print("{} Kilobits Per Second = {} Megabits Per Second".format(kilobitsPerSecond,megabitsPerSecond))

The first line of code will prompt the user to enter the Kilobits Per Second as an input. The value of Megabits Per Second is calculated on the next line, and the code in third line will display the result.
