## Kilobytes per Second (kBps) Versus Bits per Second (bps) - Comparison

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

Kilobytes per Second is a "decimal" unit where as Bits per Second is a "basic" unit. One Kilobyte is equal to 1000 bytes. There are 0.000125 Kilobyte in one Bit. Find more details on below table.

Kilobytes per Second (kBps) Bits per Second (bps)
Kilobytes per Second (kBps) is a unit of measurement for data transfer bandwidth. It measures the number of Kilobytes that can be transferred in one Second. Bits per Second (bps) is a unit of measurement for data transfer bandwidth. It measures the number of Bits that can be transferred in one Second.

Based on the provided diagram and steps outlined earlier, the formula for converting the Kilobytes per Second (kBps) to Bits per Second (bps) can be expressed as follows:

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA bps = kBps x (8x1000)

Now, let's apply the aforementioned formula and explore the manual conversion process from Kilobytes per Second (kBps) to Bits per Second (bps). To streamline the calculation further, we can simplify the formula for added convenience.

FORMULA

Bits per Second = Kilobytes per Second x (8x1000)

STEP 1

Bits per Second = Kilobytes per Second x 8000

Example : By applying the previously mentioned formula and steps, the conversion from 1 Kilobytes per Second (kBps) to Bits per Second (bps) can be processed as outlined below.

1. = 1 x (8x1000)
2. = 1 x 8000
3. = 8,000
4. i.e. 1 kBps is equal to 8,000 bps.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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

### Unit Definitions

#### What is Kilobyte ?

A Kilobyte (kB) is a decimal unit of digital information that is equal to 1000 bytes (or 8,000 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 kibibyte (KiB) is used instead.

#### What is Bit ?

A Bit (short for 'binary digit') is the basic unit of information in computing and digital communications. It is a binary value, meaning it can have one of two values=> 0 or 1. Bits are used to represent data in computers and other electronic devices. They are the building blocks of digital information, and are used to store, transmit, and process data.
