Broadband has come to be known as a type of high-speed Internet connection over fiber-optic telephone lines, with a download speed fast enough for streaming video (such as ADSL). Broadband is not widely available.

However, broadband is better defined as a standard in the transmition of multiple signals (voice, video, and data) at the same time. This is done by dividing the total capacity into several bandwidth channels, with each channel operating within a specific range of frequencies.
