Bandwidth

Maximum amount of data or information that can be sent over a network connection on a given time period, it is usually measured in bits per second. If the measurement of the bandwidth is greater, then  more data can drive through it and you  get the information faster.

To illustrate the definition,  we present the following: You have your phone and purchase monthly data, but such data has limits (meaning that the bandwidth has different sizes), if you spend it all in that month you must buy more because it consumes more resources. Understanding that if you used all the space your bandwidth can support, you have to buy more space, so the bandwidth grows and it process more information.
