Kilobit to Byte calculator (kb to B)

Convert kilobits to bytes (kb to B) by typing the amount of kilobits in the input field below and then clicking in the "Convert" button. If you want to convert from bytes to kilobits, you can use our byte to kilobit converter.


Formula used to convert kb to B:

F(x) = x * 125

For example, if you want to convert 1 kb to B, just replace x by 1 [kb]:

1 kb = 1 * 125 = 125 B


  1. Multiply the amount of kilobits by 125.
  2. The result will be expressed in bytes.

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.

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.
