The prefix "giga" mean a billion. So a Gigabit is 1 billion bits and a Gigabyte is 1 billion bytes.
There are 8 bits in a byte. So a Gigabyte is 8x bigger than a Gigabit.
A Gigabit internet connection is one that can transfer data at the rate of 1 Gigabit per second. A Gigabyte internet connection is 8x faster.
