What’s the difference between Megabits and Megabytes?
Megabyte (MB) is a unit of digital information and 1 Megabyte is equal to 8 Megabits.
Megabit (Mbit) is a unit of measurement of digital storage. And 1 Megabyte per sec is equal to 8 Megabits per sec. Megabits are mostly used to describe communication speed like our internet speed. It means that if your network upload speed is 8 Mbps per second, then you can upload 1 MB (megabyte) of data.
If you buy a internet package with “up to 50Mbps”, it means that your download speed will be 6.25 MB per sec.
You can use our tool to convert megabits per second (Mbps) to megabytes per second (MB/s).
Here are some examples:
8 Mbits = 1 MB
1 Mbit = 0.125 MB
50 Mbits = 6.25 MB
100 Mbits = 12.5 MB
1 MB = 8 Mbits
10 MB = 80 Mbits
250 MB = 2000 Mbits
