Bandwidth is the sheer volume of information measured in units of time known as Mbps (Mega Bits Per Second) 8 bits = 1 byte that your Internet connection can handle.



The amount of time it takes to download files or particular Web pages for viewing on your computer is determined by the bandwidth of the connection between your device (laptop, tablet) and your Internet Service Provider. The greater the Bandwidth, the faster and clearer your Internet access and data delivery will be.

It’s also important to note that bandwidth speed can be enhanced by downloading the latest versions of the Browser you’re using, such as Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari and others.
