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 Bits (b)
