Kilobytes per Second (kBps) Versus Megabits per Hour (Mbit/Hr) - Comparison

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

Both Kilobytes per Second and Megabits per Hour are the "decimal" units. One Kilobyte is equal to 1000 bytes. One Megabit is equal to 1000^2 bits. There are 125 Kilobyte in one Megabit. Find more details on below table.

Kilobytes per Second (kBps) Megabits per Hour (Mbit/Hr)
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. Megabits per Hour (Mbit/Hr) is a unit of measurement for data transfer bandwidth. It measures the number of Megabits that can be transferred in one Hour.

Based on the provided diagram and steps outlined earlier, the formula for converting the Kilobytes per Second (kBps) to Megabits per Hour (Mbit/Hr) can be expressed as follows:

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA Mbit/Hr = kBps x 8 ÷ 1000 x 60 x 60

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

FORMULA

Megabits per Hour = Kilobytes per Second x 8 ÷ 1000 x 60 x 60

STEP 1

Megabits per Hour = Kilobytes per Second x 0.008 x 60 x 60

STEP 2

Megabits per Hour = Kilobytes per Second x 0.008 x 3600

STEP 3

Megabits per Hour = Kilobytes per Second x 28.8

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

  1. = 1 x 8 ÷ 1000 x 60 x 60
  2. = 1 x 0.008 x 60 x 60
  3. = 1 x 0.008 x 3600
  4. = 1 x 28.8
  5. = 28.8
  6. i.e. 1 kBps is equal to 28.8 Mbit/Hr.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

You can employ the formula and steps mentioned above to convert Kilobytes per Second to Megabits per Hour 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.
