Refers to size of pipe through which data can be sent. The greater the bandwidth, the greater the amount of data the line can handle. A full page of English text is about 16,000 bits. A fast modem can move about 15,000 bits in one second. Full-motion full-screen video would require roughly 10,000,000 bits per second, depending on compression. Technically, bandwidth is the width of a transmission line measured in Hertz.
