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

- 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.

**Related Calculators**

Mbps to GB – find the number of Gigabytes that are transferred for a specified connection speed and time duration.

Mbps to MBps – megabits and megabytes are not the same. The first is used for Internet speed while the second is used for File transfer rates.

File transfer – use the number of Mbps and filesize to find how long it takes to send the file across.
