What Is Bandwidth: How Much Do I Need Each Month?

Bandwidth is understood synonymously with internet speed. The more you bandwidth you get, the faster internet you have. Equating bandwidth with internet speed is alright in laymen terms but you need to understand what speed is when it comes to sending and receiving information online.

When we talk about cars and their speed, or when we describe speed limits we refer to them in miles per hour, or kilometers per hour. Bandwidth is like that except, the units are different. Bandwidth is the amount of information that can be sent or received in one second.

Digital information is expressed in bits. Bandwidth is expressed as Mbps i.e. Megabits per second and a megabit is 60 million bits. Mbps is the standard unit for measuring bandwidth for broadband networks however, Ethernet networks can support much higher speeds and their bandwidth is sometimes expressed in Gbps i.e. Gigabits per second. Some broadband networks, especially those built using fiber optic cables can also support gigabits per second speeds
