Bandwidth

This is generally used to describe a network connection’s information-carrying capacity. It can refer to phone or computer networks, radio frequency signals and even monitors. The more bandwidth, the more users it can support and the more data those users can transmit and receive. Bandwidth is often measured in cycles per second, or hertz (Hz), which is the difference between the lowest and highest frequencies transmitted. But it’s also common to use bits or bytes per second. A full page of pure text is about 16,000 bits, and a fast modem can move about 56,000 bits per second.
