# Mbps to Gbps Converter

This tool converts Megabit-per-second to Gigabit-per-second.

ðŸ”„ Gbps to Mbps

• Megabit-per-second is also written as Mbps or Mb/s
• Gigabit-per-second is written as Gbps or Gb/s

## How to convert from Mbps to Gbps?

As a first step let’s find the number of bits in each.

• 1 Gigabit = 1,000,000,000 bits
• 1 Megabit = 1,000,000 bits

Therefore 1 Gigabit = 1000 Megabit. Both Gbps and Mbps are units for data transfer and as such the conversion is determined by the following relationship:

• 1 Mbps = 0.001 Gbps
• 1 Gbps = 1000 Mbps

## Example Calculation

Fiber internet connections can deliver speeds of 500 Mbps and higher. This is equivalent to 0.5 Gbps.

## How to Convert Mbps to Gbps

The easiest way to do this is to divide the number in Mbps by 1000. 2000 Mbps is then 2000/1000 = 2 Gbps. Alternatively the calculator on this page can be used.
