Is there only one way ?

Kbit/s springs to mind as first choice.

... but the MS manual for style has KBps and Kbps and adds:
"Spell out at first mention."

I can't imagine that Kbit/s needs spelling out at first mention,
but somehow the MS manual for style does not seem to like 'Kbit.'

"Do not use as an abbreviation for kilobit; always spell out."

Greetings
Reinhard
