What is Bandwidth?

What is bandwidth—and why is higher bandwidth so important?

Bandwidth can be confusing. It is the amount of information an internet connection can manage per second. Generally speaking, the higher the bandwidth, the quicker a device downloads information from the internet, including emails or streamed movies. High bandwidth levels let internet users accomplish activities like streaming TV shows, participating in video calls, playing online games, and posting to social media simultaneously without any slowdowns.
