**Difference between KBps and kbps:** I know you are confused between those two words. I will try to clear your confusion. Maximum people don’t know the difference between KBps and kbps. I think this post will help you to understand the difference between KBps or kbps.

## Difference Between KBps and kbps

The full name of “KBps” is – Kilo Byte Per Second (KB/s).

The full name of “kbps” is – Kilo Bit Per Second (kbps).

Maximum browsers, downloaders and FTP related software display the data transfer rate as KB/s. But the **data transfer rate of the internet** is calculated as kbps system. It means – the bandwidth of internet comes with “kbps” (Kilo Bit Per Second) system and the download speed shows as KB/s.

If we write 1kbps (Kilo Bit Per Second) as 1KBps 1kBps KB/s – then it is wrong.

We can write 1KBps (KiloByte Per Second) as 1KBps/ 1kBps KB/s.

When we purchase any data plan from any **internet service** provider, then they give us two things, one is bandwidth (i.e. 512 kbps) and other is data usage limitation (i.e. 5 GB or 10 GB).

If you purchase the above plan then your download speed will be 62.5 KBps (Bilo Byte Per Second).

### List of All Important Notes That Clears What is the difference between KBps and kbps?

Internet connectivity | Download speed (approx) |

256 kbps | 31.3 KBps |

384 kbps | 46.9 KBps |

512 kbps | 62.5 KBps |

768 kbps | 93.8 KBps |

1 Mbps ~ 1000kbps | 122.1 KBps |

bit | bit | 0 or 1 |

1byte | B | 8 bits |

1kibibit | Kibit | 1024 bits |

1kilobit | kbit | 1000 bits |

1kibibyte (binary) | KiB | 1024 bytes |

1kilobyte (decimal) | kB | 1000 bytes |

1megabit | Mbit | 1000 kilobits |

1mebibyte (binary) | MiB | 1024 kibibytes |

1megabyte (decimal) | MB | 1000 kilobytes |

1gigabit | Gbit | 1000 megabits |

1gibibyte (binary) | GiB | 1024 mebibytes |

1gigabyte (decimal) | GB | 1000 megabytes |

1terabit | Tbit | 1000 gigabits |

1tebibyte (binary) | TiB | 1024 gibibytes |

1terabyte (decimal) | TB | 1000 gigabytes |

1petabit | Pbit | 1000 terabits |

1pebibyte (binary) | PiB | 1024 tebibytes |

1petabyte (decimal) | PB | 1000 terabytes |

1exabit | Ebit | 1000 petabits |

1exbibyte (binary) | EiB | 1024 pebibytes |

1exabyte (decimal) | EB | 1000 petabytes |

**You can do it by using this formula:**

Download Speed in KBPS = {(Kbps value*1000) /8)} / 1024

**Or**

**Download Speed** = (Bandwidth / 8)

**Example:**

Suppose, you have purchased 512 kbps plan, so our kbps value=512

Since, 1kb (kilobit) = 1000bit, therefore 512kb=512kb*1000bit=512000bit,

And

As 8bit=1byte, therefore 512000bit=512000bit/8=64000byte,

As 1024byte=1kilobyte, therefore 64000byte=64000byte/1024=62.5 KB

So, we will get 62.5 KB/s speed on 512 kbps connection.

In fact, we get a bit more, so they are not exploiting us. Maybe, we realize a little.

You can also multiply with the kbps value and 0.1220703125, then you will get the KB/s speed.

## What is the difference between MBps and Mbps?

**“MBps”** stands for **Megabytes Per Second**

**“Mbps”** stands for **Megabits Per Second**

**Note:** **“B” and “b” are different. i.e ‘B’ for “Byte” and ‘b’ for “bit”**

“**Mbps**” or “**MBps**” are used to measure the internet speed or data transmission speed across a device, such as a Hard Disk Drive. The speed is usually measured in terms of bit or byte per second. The speed can be measured in terms of bps, Kbps, Mbps or Gbps:

**Kbps** – Thousands of bits per second (1000 bits/sec)

**Mbps** – Millions of bits per second (1,000,000 bits/sec)

**Gbps** – Billions of bits per second (1,000,000,000 bits/sec)
