## Megabits per Second (Mbps) Versus Megabytes per Second (MBps) - Comparison

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

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

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

## Megabits per Second (Mbps) to Megabytes per Second (MBps) Conversion - Formula & Steps

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

Outlined below is a comprehensive overview of the key attributes associated with both the source (Megabit) and target (Megabyte) data units.

The conversion diagram provided below offers a visual representation to help you better grasp the steps involved in calculating Megabit to Megabyte in a simplified manner.

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

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA MBps = Mbps ÷ 8

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

FORMULA

Megabytes per Second = Megabits per Second ÷ 8

STEP 1

Megabytes per Second = Megabits per Second x (1 ÷ 8)

STEP 2

Megabytes per Second = Megabits per Second x 0.125

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

1. = 1 ÷ 8
2. = 1 x (1 ÷ 8)
3. = 1 x 0.125
4. = 0.125
5. i.e. 1 Mbps is equal to 0.125 MBps.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

You can employ the formula and steps mentioned above to convert Megabits per Second to Megabytes 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 Megabyte ?

A Megabyte (MB) is a decimal unit of digital information that is equal to 1,000,000 bytes (or 8,000,000 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 mebibyte (MiB) is used instead.
