The formula of converting the Kilobit to Byte is represented as follows :

Bytes = kbit x 1000 / 8

Now let us apply the above formula and see how to manually convert Kilobit (kbit) to Byte (B). We can further simplify the formula to ease the calculation.


Byte = Kilobit x 1000 / 8


Byte = Kilobit x 125

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

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

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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