prabhakar:
Learn what bandwidth is and how the term is used as a synonym for signal frequency range, data transfer rate and capacity.
Yaman Singhania:
Bandwidth means data transfer rate, which is a speed of transferring data on A Particular Website. In other words, A Range of Frequencies within a given band, in particular that used for transmitting a signal.
Christina:
Hi Prabhakar..

– Bandwidth is the range of frequencies within a given band, in particular that used for transmitting a signal.
– It is usually expressed in bits per second (bps); modern networks typically have speeds measured in the millions of bits per second (megabits per second, or Mbps) or billions of bits per second.
– Bandwidth in computer networking refers to the data rate supported by a network connection or interface.

Bob:
It's a measure of how much data can be transmitted per second. It's usually expressed in units of bits per second. A typical network bandwidth is 20 Mbps (Megabits per second). A USB 2.0 hard drive might transfer data at around 480 Mbps.
Aditya:
In very basic terms, it's the difference between the lowest and highest frequencies that can be transmitted through the medium. SUPPOSE the lowest frequency that can be transmitted through a cable is 2Hz and the highest is 20Hz, the bandwidth is 18Hz
Duncan:
If we were dealing with liquids the bandwidth would be how much liquid you could get down a pipe – how fat the pipe is.

In computing terms it is how much data (bits) you can get down the pipe/wire/connection.
