What does it mean GMT 8?

GMT-8 timing
GMT-08 is a time offset that subtracts 8 hours from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). It is observed in the CIST, PST during standard time, and in the AKDT during the other months (Daylight saving time). Some locations use it year-round.

Then, what time zone is 8 hours ahead of GMT?

In the UTC standard, there is a commitment to keep within 0.9 seconds of GMT, so that every few years a leap second is applied to UTC. In the age of the internet, these small clock calibrations are conveniently distributed via NTP. UTC/GMT+8 is 8 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

Likewise, how is GMT time calculated?

Greenwich Mean Time is calculated from the Prime Meridian, which runs north and south through Greenwich, England. Since the Earth is round, there needs to be a notational line where things begin and end, and the Prime Meridian is it for time. Your GMT is either plus or minus the time at the Prime Meridian.

What cities are on GMT time?
