## Kilobytes per Second (kBps) Versus Megabits per Second (Mbps) - Comparison

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

Both Kilobytes per Second and Megabits per Second 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 Second (Mbps)
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 Second (Mbps) is a unit of measurement for data transfer bandwidth. It measures the number of Megabits that can be transferred in one Second.

## Kilobytes per Second (kBps) to Megabits per Second (Mbps) Conversion Formula and Steps

kBps to Mbps Calculator Tool allows you to easily convert from Kilobytes per Second (kBps) to Megabits per Second (Mbps). This converter uses the below formula and steps to perform the conversion.

The formula of converting the Kilobytes per Second (kBps) to Megabits per Second (Mbps) is represented as follows :

diamond Mbps = kBps x 8 ÷ 1000
Source Data Unit Target Data Unit
Kilobyte
Equal to 1000 bytes
(Decimal Unit)
Megabit
Equal to 1000^2 bits
(Decimal Unit)

The conversion diagram below will help you to visualize the steps involved in calculating Kilobyte to Megabit in a simplified manner.

÷ 1000
x 8
x 1000
÷ 8

Now let us apply the above formula and see how to manually convert Kilobytes per Second (kBps) to Megabits per Second (Mbps). We can further simplify the formula to ease the calculation.

FORMULA

Megabits per Second = Kilobytes per Second x 8 ÷ 1000

STEP 1

Megabits per Second = Kilobytes per Second x 0.008

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

1. = 1 x 8 ÷ 1000
2. = 1 x 0.008
3. = 0.008
4. i.e. 1 kBps is equal to 0.008 Mbps.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

You can use above formula and steps to convert Kilobytes per Second to Megabits 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.

#### Megabit

A Megabit (Mb or Mbit) is a decimal unit of digital information that is equal to 1,000,000 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 mebibit (Mibit) is used instead.
