bandwidth : Java Glossary



The width of the frequency spectrum needed for a data transmission channel. Used more generically to mean data transmission capacity or speed.

Your Website Bandwidth

If you have a website you will be charged about $1 for every gigabyte that visitors to your website download. Even sites that advertise unlimited bandwidth will drop you as a customer if you start using more bandwidth than the average customer. What can you do to cut costs?

Internet Access Bandwidth

When you sign up for Internet access, the cable company will artificially choke your access speed. You pay more for higher speed access, though often your total downloads measured in gigabytes each month is unlimited so long as you stay within average use range. The main way you would go over the limit is to download a lot of movies or watch a lot of movies online.
