Definition
Broadband is telecommunication in which a wide band of frequencies is available to transmit information. Because a wide band of frequencies is available, information can be multiplexed and sent on many different frequencies or channels within the band concurrently, allowing more information to be transmitted in a given amount of time. The medium can be coaxial cable, optical fiber, radio or twisted pair.
