Network Bandwidth

Network bandwidth usage explained.

In the realm of PC’s and computer networks, bandwidth is a term used to describe how much information can be transmitted over a connection. In most cases it’s presented as bits per second, or as some larger denomination of bits, like Megabits per second, expressed as kbit/s or Mbit/s. Network bandwidth indicates how much data is transferred in a certain period of time, without taking into account if all the data was delivered or not. On the other hand throughput can be described as a kind of bandwidth that indicates whether data was successfully transmitted or not. The bandwidth of a network connection might be quite high, but more importantly if the signal loss is also high, then the throughput will be lower. Likewise, a relatively low-bandwidth usage connection has a consistently high throughput if the signal quality is also high.

Unlimited Bandwidth Usage

Is Unlimited Bandwidth really possible?

Most web hosting providers have limitations on the network bandwidth usage a user is allowed with his hosted websites in a given period of time, usually a month. If you exceed this cap, the service will probably be either suspended or any overage of network bandwidth usage will be charged additionally, often at a much higher cost than the base cost included with the hosting plan. Some hosts offer unlimited bandwidth hosting plans, which in some cases have an unlimited amount of data transfer per month. Usually the actual bandwidth usage, that is the per-second transfer of a connection, is somewhat limited on these services, ensuring data transfer for the site never becomes too large. For the most users that choose an unlimited bandwidth hosting plan the characteristics mentioned above aren’t an issue, and their websites work perfectly fine.
