Enter the value and unit and click convert, the calculator will perform the conversion to all units.
Bandwidth, K = 1000
The value of K (Kilo) during calculations can take two values 1024 or 1000, depends on which type of calculation you want to perform. Consider using K = 1024 when you are considering storage capacity whether in hard disk, DVDs, flash drives or other devices and storage media. K = 1000 should be used when you are thinking of throughput, ie the speed at which information is transferred.
If your computer has 1 KB of disk space is says that he has 1024 B of space, now the throughput of your network card is 1 KB/s then it is said that it transmits data to 1000 B/s.
Most part of our users use this calculator as a byte converter converting bytes to mb, bytes to gb, bits to bytes, megabytes to kilobytes and many other formats.
