The formula of converting the Kilobyte to Gigabit is represented as follows :

Gbit = kB x 8 / 10002

Now let us apply the above formula and see how to manually convert Kilobyte (kB) to Gigabit (Gbit). We can further simplify the formula to ease the calculation.


Gigabit = Kilobyte x 8 / 10002


Gigabit = Kilobyte x 8 / (1000x1000)


Gigabit = Kilobyte x 8 / 1000000


Gigabit = Kilobyte x 0.000008

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

  1. = 10 x 8 / 10002
  2. = 10 x 8 / (1000x1000)
  3. = 10 x 8 / 1000000
  4. = 10 x 0.000008
  5. = 0.00008
  6. i.e. 10 kB is equal to 0.00008 Gbit.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

You can use above formula and steps to convert Kilobyte to Gigabit using any of the programming language such as Java, Python or Powershell.

Conversion Units

Definition : 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.

Definition : 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.
