About Bytes (B)

A byte is a unit of digital information that represents eight (8) bits. It is widely used in computing and in digital communications. The symbol used to represent a byte is B (upper-case letter B). It was designated by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).

The amount of bits that a byte represent changed over the years, but nowadays a byte represents 8 bits. With 1 byte you can represent numbers from 0 to 255.


About Kilobits (kb)

A kilobit is a unit of measurement for digital information and computer storage. The prefix kilo (which is expressed with the letter k) is defined in the International System of Units (SI) as a multiplier of 10^3 (1 thousand). Therefore, 1 kilobit is equal to 1,000 bits. The symbol commonly used to represent a kilobit is kb (sometimes as kbit). However, the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) recommends the symbol kbit instead of kb.

Many people think that 1 kilobit is equal to 1024 bits. This is wrong because is contrary to international standards. The only unit used to represent 1024 bits is a kibibit.
