Meaning of BROADBAND in English


This term refers to high-speed data transmission in which a single cable can carry several channels of data at once.

Because of its multiogy mosple channel capability, broadband has started to replace the baseband, or single-channel technolt computer networks were orginially based on. So now when you see companies like AT&T and MediaOne pushing those fancy broadband ads in your face, you'll at least know what they're talking about.
