What is Bandwidth?

The concept of bandwidth

Bandwidth refers to the maximum amount of data that can be transferred over an Internet connection via a specific path in a given period of time. Bandwidth capacity is generally measured in megabytes per second (Mbps or Mb/s). Essentially, this term refers to the amount of information that a connection can handle.

The more bandwidth a website has access to, the faster its content can load. This is because more data can be exchanged simultaneously.

The different features of websites come with very different bandwidth requirements. For example, watching a live movie or playing an online video game requires a lot of bandwidth.

Reading a simple blog article or email requires is much less demanding. In addition, some programs allow you to reduce the use of your bandwidth.

Several web hosts impose monthly bandwidth usage limits and charge users to access more. At Ex2, you don’t have that kind of problem. All our hosting plans include unlimited bandwidth, which means there is no ceiling.
