Can"t tell your bits from your bytes? Read on to learn the difference và figure out what broadb& speed is right for your home.quý khách hàng đã xem: Mb to lớn gb conversion megabytes lớn gigabytes calculator

Connection speeds và data sizes are measured differently, but people tkết thúc khổng lồ informally refer khổng lồ them both as "megs". The problem is that the word "meg" actually refers to two very different values: megabits and megabytes. But aren"t they the same thing?

Actually no, there"s a big difference between a bit và a byte. A byte is much bigger — eight times bigger, to lớn be exact, with eight bits in every byte. So there are eight megabits (Mb) in every megabyte (MB), và eight gigabits (Gb) in every gigabyte (GB).

## Bits, bytes and broadband speeds

You may be wondering how this relates khổng lồ you and your broadb& speed.

Data sizes are usually measured in "bytes", và broadband speeds are measured in "bits". Based on the tệp tin kích thước and your connection speed, you can estimate how long it"ll take you lớn tải về something.

Let"s say you find a file online that is 17 megabytes (MB) in form size, and you want khổng lồ tải về it using your 17 megabit per second (Mbps) broadb& connection. This won"t take one second; it will take eight times one second because a megabyte is eight times bigger than a megabit. So in theory — and with a perfectly consistent tốc độ — it should take eight seconds to lớn download.

Before you start reaching for your calculator, read our guide to lớn download times. We"ve pulled together a danh mục of the most common broadbvà speeds and tệp tin sizes to give sầu you an idea of how long it will take to lớn download films, TV series, songs và more.

## How can I tell the difference between a bit & a byte?

There is one exception lớn this, of course, and it is the symbol for kilobit, which is "kb", all lowercase. But these tệp tin sizes are so small nowadays that you shouldn"t really see much of them.

It"s easy to figure out based on comtháng sense: an uppercase "B" is physically larger than a lowercase "b", và a byte is larger than a bit.

## Other tệp tin sizes khổng lồ know about

While there"s a range of different tệp tin sizes, most of us only need to know a few different prefixes. Here are the most comtháng ones.

KB, MB, GB - A kilobyte (KB) is 1,024 bytes. A megabyte (MB) is 1,024 kilobytes. A gigabyte (GB) is 1,024 megabytes. A terabyte (TB) is 1,024 gigabytes.

kb, Mb, Gb - A kilobit (kb) is 1,024 bits. A megabit (Mb) is 1,024 kilobits. A gigabit (Gb) is 1,024 megabits. A terabit (Tb) is 1,024 gigabits.

Don"t forget! There are eight bits in a byte, so to translate from one lớn the other, you can multiply or divide by eight. For example, if you want to lớn transfer 38MB across a 38 Mbps connection, it will take eight seconds.
