Definition: The data rate of a computer network connection is normally measured in units of bits per second (bps). Network equipment makers typically rate their products using related, larger units of Kbps, Mbps and Gbps.

  • one kilobit per second (Kbps) equals 1000 bits per second (bps). (Note: Kbps is sometimes also written as “kbps” - both carry the same meaning.)
  • one megabit per second (Mbps) equals 1000 Kbps or one million bps.
  • one gigabit per second (Gbps) equals 1000 Mbps or one million Kbps or one billion bps.
