This tool calculates the total number of Gigabits and Gigabytes from Gigabit-per-second.
Gbps is the number of Gigabits that are transferred over a communication link every second. It is a measure of the speed of the network and also referred to as bandwidth or throughput.
To find the total data transferred in terms of Gigabits (Gb) or Gigabytes (GB), enter:
- Number of Gbps
- Time in seconds/minutes/hours
Most mobile network companies have data plans that are specified in Gbps.
For example this carrier offers 150 GB at speeds up to 1 Gbps. Once that limit is reached, the bandwidth will be reduced.
To convert from Gbps to GB, use the calculator on this page.
- The desired bandwidth. This depends on the application. For instance, streaming a 4K movie, requires up to 50 Mbps. This is equivalent to 0.05 Gbps.
- The amount of time in seconds/minutes/hours.
If a movie is streamed for 2 hours, the total data usage is 45 GB. This is about a third of the maximum data 150 GB consumption at high speed. After about 7 hours of movie watching, the speed will be reduced.
