## Kilobytes per Second (kBps) Versus Bytes per Second (Bps) - Comparison

Kilobytes per Second and Bytes 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 Bytes per Second is a "basic" unit. One Kilobyte is equal to 1000 bytes. One Byte is equal to 8 bits. There are 0.001 Kilobyte in one Byte. Find more details on below table.

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

FORMULA

Bytes per Second = Kilobytes per Second x 1000

Example : If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 1 Kilobytes per Second (kBps) to Bytes per Second (Bps) will be processed as below.

1. = 1 x 1000
2. = 1,000
3. i.e. 1 kBps is equal to 1,000 Bps.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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

### Unit Definitions

#### 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.

#### Byte

A Byte is a unit of digital information that typically consists of 8 bits and can represent a wide range of values such as characters, binary data and it is widely used in the digital world to measure the data size and data transfer speed.
