Bandwidth

In a general sense, this term describes information-carrying capacity. It can apply to radio frequency signals, telephone or network wiring, and system buses and monitors. In broadcasting parlance, this is a section of the radio frequency spectrum needed to transmit visually, aurally, or both. The bandwidth of the average television channel is 6 million cycles per second (6 MHZ). In Internet parlance, it’s common to use bits or bytes per second (e.g., A T1 line has a bandwidth of 1.544 megabits per second).
