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

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

Both Megabits per Second and Kilobytes per Second are the "decimal" units. One Megabit is equal to 1000^2 bits. One Kilobyte is equal to 1000 bytes. There are 0.008 Megabit in one Kilobyte. Find more details on below table.

Megabits per Second (Mbps) Kilobytes per Second (kBps)
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) 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) to Kilobytes per Second (kBps) Conversion - Formula & Steps

The Mbps to kBps Calculator Tool provides a convenient solution for effortlessly converting data rates from Megabits per Second (Mbps) to Kilobytes per Second (kBps). Let's delve into a thorough analysis of the formula and steps involved.

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

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA kBps = Mbps x 1000 ÷ 8

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

FORMULA

Kilobytes per Second = Megabits per Second x 1000 ÷ 8

STEP 1

Kilobytes per Second = Megabits per Second x 125

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

1. = 1 x 1000 ÷ 8
2. = 1 x 125
3. = 125
4. i.e. 1 Mbps is equal to 125 kBps.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

You can employ the formula and steps mentioned above to convert Megabits per Second to Kilobytes 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.

#### What is 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.
