## Kilobits per Second (kbps) Versus Megabytes per Second (MBps) - Comparison

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

Both Kilobits per Second and Megabytes per Second are the "decimal" units. One Kilobit is equal to 1000 bits. One Megabyte is equal to 1000^2 bytes. There are 8,000 Kilobit in one Megabyte. Find more details on below table.

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

## Kilobits per Second (kbps) to Megabytes per Second (MBps) Conversion Formula and Steps kbps to MBps Calculator Tool allows you to easily convert from Kilobits per Second (kbps) to Megabytes per Second (MBps). This converter uses the below formula and steps to perform the conversion.

The formula of converting the Kilobits per Second (kbps) to Megabytes per Second (MBps) is represented as follows :

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA MBps = kbps ÷ (8x1000)
Source Data Unit Target Data Unit
Kilobit
Equal to 1000 bits
(Decimal Unit)
Megabyte
Equal to 1000^2 bytes
(Decimal Unit)

The conversion diagram below will help you to visualize the steps involved in calculating Kilobit to Megabyte in a simplified manner.

÷ 8
÷ 1000
x 8
x 1000

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

FORMULA

Megabytes per Second = Kilobits per Second ÷ (8x1000)

STEP 1

Megabytes per Second = Kilobits per Second ÷ 8000

STEP 2

Megabytes per Second = Kilobits per Second x (1 ÷ 8000)

STEP 3

Megabytes per Second = Kilobits per Second x 0.000125

Example : If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 1 Kilobits per Second (kbps) to Megabytes per Second (MBps) will be processed as below.

1. = 1 ÷ (8x1000)
2. = 1 ÷ 8000
3. = 1 x (1 ÷ 8000)
4. = 1 x 0.000125
5. = 0.000125
6. i.e. 1 kbps is equal to 0.000125 MBps.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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

### Unit Definitions

#### 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.

#### Megabyte

A Megabyte (MB) is a decimal 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.
