Gbps stands for thousands of bits or kilobits per second is a measure of bandwidth (the total information flow over a given time) on a telecommunications medium. Depending on the medium and the transmission method, bandwidth is sometimes measured in the Mbps (millions of bits per second or megabits per second) range or the Kbps (thousands of bits or kilobits per second).
Stands for GigaBits Per Second. A gigabit is 1,073,741,824 bits. 1gbps is about 1,900 times faster than the average narrow band modem (56k) and about 1,000 times faster than entry level ADSL broadband (1mbps).
Gigabits per second, a measure of broadband speed or bandwidth that translates to one billion bits per second --1,000 times faster (or more data per second) that 1 mbps. The latter speed was once considered lightening fast but has been outpaced by BPL, cable modems and DSL.
A measure of bandwidth (the amount of data that can flow in a given time). Gbps is defined as the number of bits per second ( in billions of bytes ) that can be transmitted over the specified data transmission medium. See also "giga" and gigabyte below.
