Broadband is not a system or a technology, but rather refers to speed and capacity (bandwidth) of a network connection. Broadband in this context refers to high-speed Internet connections that are always connected (no dial-up) to very high-speed networks, enabling super-fast downloads and uploads. Broadband networks have the potential to dramatically change, enhance, and transform the types of applications and services currently available through todays narrowband Internet. A broadband network can provide customers with a choice of service providers and services.
