What is data transfer rate?Data Transfer Rate is the speed at which a certain amount of data is transmitted between devices over a given period of time. It applies specifically to digital data streams. Common data transfer rate units are multiples of bits per second (bit/s) and bytes per second (B/s).
InputKilobits Per Second (also abbreviated as kbps) is one thousand (10³) bits per second.
Bits Per Second (also abbreviated as bps) is usually the smallest data transfer rate commonly used which equals to one-eight of a byte per second.
