What is bandwidth?

Bandwidth refers to the amount of information that can be transmitted over a network in a given amount of time, usually expressed in bits per second or bps. It is often confused with speed. Speed is the time it takes for one piece of information to get from point A to point B. Think of two moving carpets or "bands" of different widths, both moving at identical speeds. Two boxes, one placed on each moving carpet will both reach the end at the same time, but the wider carpet can carry more boxes than the narrow one. Thus, a network with more bandwidth can carry more information per second than one with less bandwidth.
