A kilobit is a unit of measurement used to measure digital data. It is equal to 1,000 bits and it can be used for different types of data such as text files, images, audio, or video. Kilobits are often abbreviated as kbps (kilobits per second) which measures the speed at which information is transferred over a network connection. The kilobit was introduced in 1984 by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). The term kilobyte refers to 8 times more than one kilo bit; meaning that it comprises 8 x 1000 = 8000 bits and therefore 8 bits equals 1 byte. A megabit consists of 1000 kilobits while a gigabit contains 1000… Read More
