## 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.

## Megabits per Second (Mbps) to Gigabytes per Second (GBps) Conversion Formula and Steps Mbps to GBps Calculator Tool allows you to easily convert from Megabits per Second (Mbps) to Gigabytes 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 Gigabytes per Second (GBps) is represented as follows :

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA GBps = Mbps ÷ (8x1000)

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

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 : If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 1 Megabits per Second (Mbps) to Gigabytes per Second (GBps) will be processed as 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 use above formula and steps to convert Megabits per Second to Gigabytes 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.

#### Gigabyte

A Gigabyte (GB) is a decimal unit of digital information that is equal to 1,000,000,000 bytes (or 8,000,000,000 bits) and commonly used to measure the storage capacity of computer hard drives, flash drives, and other digital storage devices. It is also used to express data transfer speeds and in the context of data storage and memory, the binary-based unit of Gibibyte (GiB) is used instead.
