A byte is the basic unit of measurement of information storage in computer science. In many computer architectures it is a unit of memory addressing, consisting of 8 bits.

Since computer memory comes in base two rather than 10, a large portion of the software and computer industry use binary estimates of the SI-prefixed quantities, while producers of computer storage devices prefer the SI values. This is why a computer hard drive advertised with a "100 GB" decimal storage capacity actually contains no more than 93 GB of 8-bit (power of 2) addressable storage.

Definition: Kilobit

The kilobit is a multiple of the unit bit for digital information or computer storage.

1 kilobit = 1000 bits.

Using the common byte size of 8 bits, 1 kbit is equal to 125 bytes.

Note this is different from the kibibit, which is 1024 bits.
