Kilobytes per Second (kBps) Versus Gigabits per Second (Gbps) - Comparison

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

Both Kilobytes per Second and Gigabits per Second are the "decimal" units. One Kilobyte is equal to 1000 bytes. One Gigabit is equal to 1000^3 bits. There are 125,000 Kilobyte in one Gigabit. Find more details on below table.

Kilobytes per Second (kBps) Gigabits per Second (Gbps)
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. Gigabits per Second (Gbps) is a unit of measurement for data transfer bandwidth. It measures the number of Gigabits 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 Gigabits per Second (Gbps) can be expressed as follows:

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA Gbps = kBps x 8 ÷ 10002

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

FORMULA

Gigabits per Second = Kilobytes per Second x 8 ÷ 10002

STEP 1

Gigabits per Second = Kilobytes per Second x 8 ÷ (1000x1000)

STEP 2

Gigabits per Second = Kilobytes per Second x 8 ÷ 1000000

STEP 3

Gigabits per Second = Kilobytes per Second x 0.000008

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

  1. = 1 x 8 ÷ 10002
  2. = 1 x 8 ÷ (1000x1000)
  3. = 1 x 8 ÷ 1000000
  4. = 1 x 0.000008
  5. = 0.000008
  6. i.e. 1 kBps is equal to 0.000008 Gbps.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

You can employ the formula and steps mentioned above to convert Kilobytes per Second to Gigabits 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 Gigabit ?

A Gigabit (Gb or Gbit) is a decimal unit of digital information that is equal to 1,000,000,000 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 gibibit (Gibit) is used instead.
