Megabits per Second (Mbps) Versus Gigabytes per Second (GBps) - Comparison

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

Both Megabits per Second and Gigabytes per Second are the "decimal" units. One Megabit is equal to 1000^2 bits. One Gigabyte is equal to 1000^3 bytes. There are 8,000 Megabit in one Gigabyte. Find more details on below table.

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

Based on the provided diagram and steps outlined earlier, the formula for converting the Megabits per Second (Mbps) to Gigabytes per Second (GBps) can be expressed as follows:

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA GBps = Mbps ÷ (8x1000)

Now, let's apply the aforementioned formula and explore the manual conversion process from Megabits per Second (Mbps) to Gigabytes per Second (GBps). To streamline the calculation further, we can simplify the formula for added convenience.

FORMULA

Gigabytes per Second = Megabits per Second ÷ (8x1000)

STEP 1

Gigabytes per Second = Megabits per Second ÷ 8000

STEP 2

Gigabytes per Second = Megabits per Second x (1 ÷ 8000)

STEP 3

Gigabytes per Second = Megabits per Second x 0.000125

Example : By applying the previously mentioned formula and steps, the conversion from 1 Megabits per Second (Mbps) to Gigabytes per Second (GBps) can be processed as outlined below.

  1. = 1 ÷ (8x1000)
  2. = 1 ÷ 8000
  3. = 1 x (1 ÷ 8000)
  4. = 1 x 0.000125
  5. = 0.000125
  6. i.e. 1 Mbps is equal to 0.000125 GBps.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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

Unit Definitions

What is 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.
