Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

1 mile  =  1609 m 

1 meter  =  1/1609 

    3 * 10^8  m            = 186451.219  miles 

                   speed  =   186451.219 / 10^-6  =1.86 *10^11 miles/μs


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
