Bandwidth is a simple term for Internet airtime. The term is used to mean download time, or the time the user needs to wait to be able to view a site. Bandwidth is potential capacity, with a limit. It is the wires and cables that carry traffic over the Internet. Bandwidth can handle many callers simultaneously, but can slow down if many people use it at once, especially if graphics are being used. For more information on bandwidth, please contact your local Internet service provider.
