Broadband - Broadband Guide - Bandwidth

You may have heard of the term or word "Bandwidth" while you have been searching for the right broadband provider and it is quite an important term to take note of as the Bandwidth is the amount of data you are likely to use every month.

Different people will use different amount's, the person who just goes on the Internet to check emails and do a few searches on google will use far less bandwidth than the person who downloads music tracks everyday.

Different broadband providers allow different amount's of bandwidth, with many giving unlimited bandwidth so you don't need to worry about over using the Internet, while others set limits on the bandwidth.

You may just think that unlimited bandwidth is the best way to go, but for many it might not be as the broadband providers usually either offer a lesser connection or increased price. In reality you don't need to worry too much about this as usually it is only a few £'s difference between packages anyway.

Below is an example of what you get for your bandwidth. It was an example provided by Virgin.net
