You might think it's...
the amount of left-to-right stage area a rock group needs.
But the real definition of bandwidth is...
the amount of information that can be carried through a phone
line, cable line, satellite feed, and so on. The greater the bandwidth,
the greater the speed of your connection and the more your Internet
experience approaches a more instant-download, TV-style experience.
While programmers and designers tend to decry the lack of bandwidth,
many site visitors would prefer a greater focus on providing useful,
inspiring, easy-to-use sites instead.
