Kilobits per second

A measure of data transmission rate (speed) equal to approximately 1024 bits per second.

Data rate is also often measured in Mbps:

1 Mbps = 1024 Kbps

The "Kb" in Kbps should not be confused with KB, which stands for kilobytes, a very different measurement.

Still confused? Spot a mistake? Give us your feedback on this definition.
