# gigabit to gigabyte

Both these units are unit for memory, here in this section we will talk on the concept of gigabits and gigabyte, but to understand both these units, first, we need to understand what is a bit and what a byte is.

Difference between bits and byte?

A bit is the smallest unit which is used to measure data; the bit is the smallest units and byte is another successors unit of data which comes after bits.

## gigabit to gigabyte

This is very important to note the one bit is equal 8 bytes, this is the crucial difference between a bit and a byte.

Gigabits, gigabits is the successor unit, which is used to measure memory in terms of the smallest unit which is a bit. Here to understand this consider is that one gigabit is equal to 1024 megabits and one megabit is equal to 1024 kilobits and here comes the fact that one kilobit is equal to one bit.

Now we can compare that, one gigabit is equal to 1024 x 1024 x 1024 bits per seconds.

Gigabyte, a byte is the combination of 8 bits, here one thing to consider is that Gigabyte is a successor of byte, to understand consider that one Gigabyte is equal to 1024 megabytes and one megabyte is equal to 1024 kilobyte, and one kilobyte is equal to 1024 byte.

Hence a gigabyte is a unit which is equal to 1024 megabits.

Conversion, here we will consider the transformation of gigabits to gigabyte. For that, we will find an equation.

One gigabyte is equal to 8 gigabits; this is simple to understand that this is because one byte is equal to 8 bits.

Gigabits to gigabyte conversion.

One gigabit = 0.125 gigabytes. You can use this conversion unit to convert, gigabits to gigabyte.
