  ÷ 8  

The formula of converting the Megabyte to Gigabit is represented as follows :

Gbit = MB x 8 / 1000

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Megabyte (MB) to Gigabit (Gbit). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.


Gigabit = Megabyte x 8 / 1000


Gigabit = Megabyte x 0.008

Example : If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 10 MB to Gbit, will be processed as below.

  1. = 10 x 8 / 1000
  2. = 10 x 0.008
  3. = 0.08
  4. i.e. 10 MB is equal to 0.08 Gbit.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

You can use above formula and steps to convert Megabyte to Gigabit using any of the programming language such as Java, Python or Powershell.

Conversion Units

Definition : Megabyte

A Megabyte (MB) is a 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.

Definition : Gigabit

A Gigabit (Gb or Gbit) is a 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.
