There are 1,000 KBps in 1 MBps. KBps is an acronym that stands for kilobytes per second, whereas MBps is an acronym that stands for megabytes per second. This is not to be confused with a similarly notated measurement of Mbps, which stands for megabits per second.
The standard way to measure Internet speed is using MBps per second. When Internet connections were slower, the speeds were measured in KBps. Most of the files stored on computers are measured in megabytes. When comparing Internet speeds, it is important for consumers to ensure that testing mechanisms are using the same measurement system.
