What is bandwidth?

Bandwidth is the capacity of your broadband to transmit and receive data: you can view it as the speed of your internet connection. It’s measured in bits per second, with 1 bit being one “bit” of data. With broadband being so fast, we normally now measure in “Mega-bits per second” – or Mbps. If you measure your connection speed and actually have 2Mbps download, this means that you are receiving 2 million bits of data per second.
