# Convert Mbps to Kbps

Please provide values below to convert megabit/second [Mb/s] to kilobit/second [kb/s], or vice versa.

 From: megabit/second To: kilobit/second

### Megabit per second

Definition: A megabit per second (Mbps) is a unit of data-transfer rate. A megabit per second, not to be confused with megabyte per second, is equal to 1,000,000 bits per second, or 10002 bits per second. A megabyte per second (MBps) on the other hand is equal to 8,000,000 bits per second since each byte contain 8 bit.

Current use: Units of data-transfer rate are used throughout a variety of fields such as networking, audio data, and computer data interfaces. The unit of Mbps is widely used in networking technologies, such as phone-line networks, wireless communications, and the Internet. Internet service providers often advertise download or upload rates in terms of Mbps.

### Kilobit per second

Definition: A kilobit per second (Kbps) is a unit of data-transfer rate. A kilobit is equal to 1000 bits per second and should not be confused with kilobytes per second (8,000 bits per second).

Current use: The unit of kilobits per second, along with other multiples of data-transfer rate, are used in a variety of applications including networking, phone-line networks, wireless communications, and the Internet. In the early days of the Internet, 56 kbps modems were common in networking. Data transfer typically occurs at higher rates today, depending on the connection.

### How to Convert Megabit/second to Kilobit/second

1 Mb/s = 1024 kb/s
1 kb/s = 0.0009765625 Mb/s

Example: convert 15 Mb/s to kb/s:
15 Mb/s = 15 × 1024 kb/s = 15360 kb/s
