Information on conversion units:
About Bit (bits):
The bit, its symbol b (lowercase letter b), is a unit of measurement used in the binary system to store or transmit data, such as the internet connection speed or the quality scale of an audio or video recording.
A bit is usually represented with two values, a 0 or a 1, although it can also be interpreted with other values such as yes/no, true/false, plus/minus, etc. Saying that 8 bits make 1 byte.
A bit is one of the fundamental units used in computer technology, information technology, digital communication, as well as for storing, processing and transmitting various types of data.
Note: Do not confuse Bit with Byte, (8 Bits = 1 Byte).
About KiloBit (Kbit):
The kilobit, its symbol kbit (lowercase letters), is a fairly small unit of digital information, equal to 1000 bits, or in other words, equal to 125 bytes.
Units such as kilobit are generally used to measure data rates, data transmission or scale the amount of information transmitted per second, with the common abbreviation kbps. One kilobit is equal to 103 bits or 125 bytes.
Note: Do not confuse KiloBit with KiloByte, (1 KiloBit = 0.1220703125 KiloByte).
Conversion formula to go from Bit (bits) to KiloBit (Kbit)
KiloBit (Kbit) = Bit (bits) * (1000-1)
