## kBps to kbps - Conversion Formula and Steps

Kilobyte and Kilobit are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Both are decimal units. One Kilobyte is equal to 1000 bytes. One Kilobit is equal to 1000 bits. There are 0.125 Kilobytes in one Kilobit. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit
Kilobyte (kB)
Equal to 1000 bytes
(Decimal Unit)
Kilobit (kbit)
Equal to 1000 bits
(Decimal Unit)

Below conversion diagram will help you to visualize the Kilobyte to Kilobit calculation steps in a simplified manner.

The formula of converting the Kilobytes Per Second to Kilobits Per Second is represented as follows :

kbps = kBps x 8

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Kilobytes Per Second (kBps) to Kilobits Per Second (kbps). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.

1. FORMULA → Kilobits Per Second = Kilobytes Per Second x 8

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

1. = 10 x 8
2. = 80
3. i.e. 10 kBps is equal to 80 kbps.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

#### Definition : Kilobyte

A Kilobyte (kB) is a 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.

#### Definition : Kilobit

A Kilobit (kb or kbit) is a 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.
