What is Bandwidth?
Bandwidth is the measurement of the ability of an electronic communications device or system to send and receive information.
Bandwidth refers to the maximum amount of data that can be transmitted via an internet provider over a certain period of time, usually be monthly.
It specifically relates to the capacity of a network’s communications link to carry data from one node to another, and not the speed of that data transfer – for that you need to look at latency.
While bandwidth has no bearing on the speed, a low capacity can create a bottleneck in a network that will result in slow or unresponsive applications for the end user.
