What is high bandwidth?

Also known as: High-speed

Bandwidth, typically measured in bits, kilobits, or megabits per second, is the rate at which data flows over the network. This is a measure of throughput (amount per second) rather than speed (distance traveled per second). A high bandwidth network generally can deliver more information than a low bandwidth network given the same amount of a time. Because this can make the network feel faster, high bandwidth networks and connections often are called “high-speed”.
