(Comp Sci.)
A measure of computer memory or disk space consisting of about one thousand million bytes (a thousand megabytes). The actual value is 1,073,741,824 bytes (1,024 megabytes).
I downloaded at 1gBps.
Which is approximately 1,024 mBps.

1024 Kilobytes, written mB used to refer to size of files or media such as hard drives. Refers to amount of information in a file, or how much information can be contained on a Hard Drive or Disk. Also 1,048,576 bytes.
I downloaded at 4mBps.
Which is approximately 4096 kilobytes.

A measure of computer memory or storage, a kilobyte (KB or Kbyte*) is approximately a thousand bytes (actually, 2 to the 10th power, or decimal 1,024 bytes).
I downloaded a 4kb large file.
So it is approximately 4096 bytes.

(Comp Sci.)
Amount of memory equal to 1024 Megabits (1,073,741,824 bits) of information. Abbreviated gb.

gb = Gigabit
gB = Gigabyte
Examples:

gbps (Gigabits Per Second)
gBps (Gigabytes Per Second)
I downloaded at 3gbps.
Which is approximately 3072 mbps.

Equal to 1,048,576 bits, though commonly referred to as one million bits. Abbreviated as mb.

mB = Megabyte
mb = Megabit
Examples:

mBps (Megabytes Per Second)
mbps (Megabits Per Second)
I downloaded at 6mbps.
Which is approximately 6,291,456 bits.

(Comp Sci.)
Approximately one thousand bits, or exactly 1 bit x 210 (1,024) bits. 240 kilobits per second means 240,000 bits of information are being transmitted over a network per second (240 Kbps). Recall that 8 bits comprise a byte.

Bit = b
Byte = B
Examples:

kBps (Kilobytes Per Second)
kbps (Kilobits Per Second)
I downloaded at 50kbps.
Which is approximatly 50,000 Bits per second.
