We also need to ignore the fact that "KiB/s" seems to be referring to a "kibibit", which is a binary data rate, which just confuses the matter even more. So to avoid confusion I will avoid short form and use only the long form of the words, kilobit and kilobyte. Also to simplify matters, I will ignore the extra 24 bits per second a kibibyte allows and refer to it as a kilobit to kilobyte conversion, which is much more familiar.

Now, with all that confusion out of the way.

11.87 kilobytes per second converts to 94 kilobits per second

48 kilobytes per second converts to 384 kilobits per second

For the sake of completion

There are 1.024 kilobytes in a Kibibyte so the calculations change a little.

11.87 KiB or kibibytes per second converts to 12.15488 kilobytes per second

12.15488 kilobytes per second converts to 97.23904 kilobits per second

11.87 KiB/s = 12.15488 KB/s = 97.23904 Kb/s. So, to finally answer your question, 384Kb is greater than 11.87 KiB.
