What is bandwidth?

Technically, bandwidth refers to the amount of data that can be transmitted over the internet connection in a given time period. Or in simpler terms, bandwidth can be understood as the amount of information received per second/minute.

Your website may contain various content in the form of webpages, blogs, images, videos, and animations. Hence it is essential to have an adequate amount of bandwidth to render these content properly to your website visitors. Insufficient bandwidth may render your website inaccessible or may cause it to crash in case of increased traffic load.

Hence having a sufficient amount of bandwidth is necessary to provide a satisfactory website experience to your end-users.

One practical way to manage your network bandwidth is by using a bandwidth monitoring tool. This tool can provide alerts when thresholds are breached and also offer insights that can assist in effective planning and allocation of bandwidth.
