What is broadband?

The definition...

broad·band  

/ˈbrôdˌband/
Adjective
Of or using signals over a wide range of frequencies in high-capacity telecommunications, esp. as used for access to the Internet.
Noun
Signals over such a range of frequencies.

Unfortunately this definition Webster brewed up means almost nothing to the average person. I will go ahead and explain in laymen's terms.

Broadband is the type of transfer that data uses to get from one place to another.

For example a faster BroadBand connection means your information will arrive or be sent faster over the internet.

Now WikaPedia says it is:

The term broadband refers to the wide bandwidth characteristics of a transmission medium and its ability to transport multiple signals and traffic types simultaneously. The medium can be coax, optical fiber, twisted pair or wireless. In contrast, baseband describes a communication system in which information is transported across a single channel.

Again probably not the least bit helpful for the average person.

I like to think of bandwidth as transfer and the ability to transfer either faster or in bulk depends on your connection.

It's a common mistake to think the best network provider is the fastest. It's not even close, the best network is when the company uses a blend. Hopefully they weed out the week sites and keep adding more fast ones.

A great web hosting company might use 5-10 connections and blend them all together whith a smart BGP which will always route to the network with the fastest connection.

When broadband is being used with web hosting than you can look at it this way. Most high end hosting customers have a MPS they are allowed. For example a basic server costs $169 this includes 20 MPS of bandwidth. Just ten years ago this much bandwidth would of cost around $5k a month. It's just amazing how cheap bandwidth is now a days. In japan it's even cheaper and much much faster!

An interesting fact BroadBand.com was sold for millions of dollar to Yahoo and has never really been used. Why they are not making an internet TV system with that amazing domain I will never understand.
