In telecommunications, broadband means a wide range of frequencies over which information can be transmitted. For example, picture a highway. Only one car can travel at a time on a one-lane highway (narrowband), but there can be more traffic at the same time on a six-lane highway (broadband). Allows users to have “always-on” data connections that enable them to access multiple media sources and a wide range of information at the same time.
