MBps vs. Mbps
Difference Between MBps and Mbps
MBps and Mbps appear to be similar but are very confusing for many. It is easily noticeable that the PS in the two mean per second, the main confusion lies in the use of lower case or capital B. Capital B refers to bytes and the lower case refers to bits. Anyway, MBps and Mbps in are used to express the rate of data transmission in every communication system including internet. We must know that one megabyte equals to 8 megabit.
The data transmission rates are important in measuring the level of performance of hardware devices. These transfer rates are used in connection with all the hardware devices such as USB ports or Fireware. The transfer rates are significant when the broadband companies trying to market their plans by making their plan to be one up on the competition. If you have basic knowledge of terminology, you can evaluate quickly the speed of data transfer than falling into confusion by using capital or lower case B.
When a company says it provides broadband Internet speeds of 128, 256, 512 Kbps and more in terms of Mbps, it speaks of Megabits per second. It is also the measure of the frequency bandwidth of a network.
But when you download a program or folder of the Internet, the data transmission speed is specified in terms of Kbps or Mbps is megabits per second.
