in the Network performance GUI it's KBps units

KBps
BYTE:  abbreviated to a capital B (KBps), another unit of measurement in a computer, 8 bits are in a single byte.  Other lengths are possible like 16, 32, 64, etc but network communications is based on 8 bit lengths.

2000 KBps (kilobytes per second)

= 2 MBps (megabytes per second)
= 16000 kbps (kilobits per second)
= 0.002 GBps (gigabytes per second)
