## Megabits per Second (Mbps) Versus Gigabits per Second (Gbps) - Comparison

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

Both Megabits per Second and Gigabits per Second are the "decimal" units. One Megabit is equal to 1000^2 bits. One Gigabit is equal to 1000^3 bits. There are 1,000 Megabit in one Gigabit. Find more details on below table.

Megabits per Second (Mbps) Gigabits per Second (Gbps)
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. 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.

## Megabits per Second (Mbps) to Gigabits per Second (Gbps) Conversion Formula and Steps Mbps to Gbps Calculator Tool allows you to easily convert from Megabits per Second (Mbps) to Gigabits per Second (Gbps). This converter uses the below formula and steps to perform the conversion.

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

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA Gbps = Mbps ÷ 1000

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

FORMULA

Gigabits per Second = Megabits per Second ÷ 1000

STEP 1

Gigabits per Second = Megabits per Second x (1 ÷ 1000)

STEP 2

Gigabits per Second = Megabits per Second x 0.001

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

1. = 1 ÷ 1000
2. = 1 x (1 ÷ 1000)
3. = 1 x 0.001
4. = 0.001
5. i.e. 1 Mbps is equal to 0.001 Gbps.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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

### Unit Definitions

#### 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.

#### 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.
