How many MegaBit per Second equal one GigaBit per Second?

Following from the definition [1][2] of the megabit and the gigabit 1,000 mbps equal 1 gbps, where mbps stands for megabits per second and gbps is the symbol for gigabits per second. If expressed in terms of powers of ten, which is the standard in the decimal system, 1 megabit is 106 bits while 1 gigabit is 109 bits. Since we know that 103 is equal to 1,000, we can directly prove the equality.

Difference between Gbps and Mbps

Both units are used for network bandwidth (capacity), the difference is in their magnitude where in 1 gbps equals 1,000 mbps, so it denotes 1,000 times larger capacity.

Your Internet Service Provider (ISP) likely lists their internet connection packages in terms of mbps, e.g. 10 mbps, 25 mbps, 50 mbps, 100 mbps - it would be inconvenient to list them as fractions of gigabytes per second, and would make it less visually appealing on marketing materials as well. Gbps is used mostly for business high-capacity connections, such as the ones used by data centers. E.g. a typical data center may have a 100 gbps connection, which is then split into 1,000 100-mbps connections sold to end users collocating their equipment in the data center.

How to convert GigaBits per Second to MegaBits per Second

To convert gbit/s to mbit/s you need to multiply the gbps number by 1,000. It is that simple, but still a converter like the one above is useful if you need to make the calculation many times, or you need to be sure that it is done in the same correct manner each time. A step by step calculation example is below.

Gbps to Mbps conversion example

Sample task: convert 10 Gbps to Mbps. Solution:

Formula:
Gbps * 1000 = Mbps
Calculation:
10 Gbps * 1,000 = 10,000 Mbps
End result:
10 Gbps is equal to 10,000 Mbps
