The bit rate is also referred to as the transmission speed, transfer rate or data rate.

The bit rate is the number of bits that are transmitted per unit of time - usually one second. The bit rate is specified in bit/s (bits per second) or in the corresponding prefixes as kilobits per second (kbit/s), megabits per second (Mbit/s), gigabits per second (Gbit/s) or terabits per second (Tbit/s). In American notation, the notations bit per second bps, kbps, Mbps, and Tbps are used. The bit rate can also be specified in baud.
