The full form of MBPS is "Megabits per Second", MBPS is a term to measure or calculate data transfer in any network, which is also called Mbps ya Mb/s or Mbit/s in short cut. This unit tells, how many Megabit data transfer can be done in a second. For your information, let us tell you that there are 1000 Kilobits in a Megabit. Now let's get to other general information about it. Mbps indicates one million bits per second or 1,000 kilobytes of data transfer, a megabit being about one-eighth the size of a megabyte. A string of 8 bits constitutes 1 byte. Any character, symbol or punctuation mark is denoted by 8 bits. Megabit can be defined as 1,048,576 (ie 2^20) bits. Which is used to describe data storage. Whereas, to measure the data transfer rate, one MB is equal to 1,000,000 bits. Mbps and MBps (megabytes per second) are two different measurements. For example, your broadband connection gives the speed in Mbps (megabits per second), whereas, Mbps (megabytes per second) is used to measure the size of your file.
