What is the full form of KB, MB, GB, TB? What does 100mbps mean in broadband? – As you all know, there are many units for weighing or measuring any object. For measuring distance, there are units like millimeter, centimeter, kilometer, etc. In the same way, many units have been prescribed to measure the data stored in the computer.
KB, MB, GB, TB, etc. are the units for measuring the data stored in the computer. Just as the unit of measurement of any distance is meter, similarly the unit of measurement of computer data is Byte. In this article we will tell you what are KB, MB, GB, TB? What is their full form?
Whenever you download any song, video or any application in computer or smartphone, then all those files have a data size which are in MB or GB. If a file is in MB then it takes less time to download and if it is in GB then it takes more time to download. Now the question comes in people’s mind that what are these MB and GB and what is the difference between them?
What are KB, MB, GB, TB?
Actually KB, MB, GB, TB are all units of measurement of computer data. The smallest unit of measurement of computer data is the bit which is represented by b. The larger unit is the byte, which is represented by B. One byte is equal to 8 bits. After this 1000 bytes together make 1KB, 1000KB together make 1MB, 1000MB together make 1GB and 1000GB together make 1TB.
• 8 bits= 1 Byte
• 1000 Byte = 1 KiloByte (KB)
• 1000KB = 1 MegaByte (MB)
• 1000 MB = 1 GigaByte (GB)
• 1000 GB = 1 TeraByte (TB)
What is the full form of KB, MB, GB, TB?
KB full form Kilobyte, MB full form Megabyte, GB full form Gygabyte, TB full form Terabyte, PB full form Petabyte, EB full form Exabyte, ZB full form Zettabyte and YB full form Yottabyte.
• KB= Kilobyte
• MB= Megabyte
• GB= Gigabyte
• TB= Terabyte
• PB= Petabyte
• EB= Exabyte
• ZB = Zettabyte
• YB= Yottabyte
What does 100mbps mean in broadband?
If you have installed any broadband or internet connectivity in your home, then the speed of 100mbps will be told by them. A lot of people think that this will give a speed of 100 megabytes per second (100MB/Sec), but it does not happen. This is because internet of such speed is not present in India yet. Actually this speed is not found in megabits per second but in megabits per second.
In internet connectivity, mbps means megabit per second and as we have already told you that 8 bits is equal to 1 byte. That’s why you have to divide by 8 to convert megabits (Mb) to megabytes (MB). If you divide 100 megabits by 8, that’s 12.5 megabytes (12.5MB). This means that you will get 12.5 megabits per second (MB/Sec) speed in 100mbps speed internet. That is, you can download or browse 12.5 megabytes per second.
