Tips To Lower Your Broadband Usage Over Internet- (part 2)

2. Knowing the Bandwidth measuring units: Difference between KBps and kbps

It is very important to know about how we measure the usage statistics. Although, virtually KBps and kbps are treated as same by many users, actually both of them are different units of data measurement.

• kbps = Kilo Bits per second;

• KBps = Kilo Bytes per second;

• 8 bits = 1 bytes => 8kb = 1 KB


Similar relationships holds for [mb, MB], [gb, GB] and so… So, the next time you see that you have consumed only 100,000 kb of data from your limit, do not confuse it with 100,000 KB. Your usage is actually lower!
