I am often asked the difference betweenand Kbps,here is the answer:
In data communications a Kilois one thousand s. It is used to measure the amount of data transferred per second. Kilobits per second is shortened to kb/s, Kbps or kbps (as opposed to , which is Kilo per second. Note the capitalization.) The lowercase b is commonly used to denote bits, while the uppercase B is used for .
bit: minimum unit that handles a computer. (zero a one).
: it is a set of 8 bits and represents a character.
bps: (bit per seconds) unit of measurement of information transference.
s/s: (bytes per seconds) unit of measurement of transference of information in byte per second.
1 KB/s = 1024 bytes per second
1 kb/s = 1000 bits per second
1024 kb = 1 mb (megabyte)
