I know you hear people use the word, but do you really know what it means?
Definition: Broadband is a term that is used consistently with different types of internet connections.
Broadband in telecommunications means a wide range of frequencies that are available to transmit information. This ultimately means that the wider the range of frequencies available, the high the amount of information that can be sent at one given time.
For an easy way to picture a broadband internet connection compared to a narrowband internet connection, think of a highway.
With a one lane highway (narrowband), only one car at a time can travel, however with broadband, you can have a highway with 6 or 8 lanes, allowing more traffic to pass at one specific time.
