Hourglass demonstrating how bandwidth works
What is Bandwidth?
Let's use this hourglass above to explain bandwidth. The sand represents the data, the top half is all of the internet, the lower half is your computer, and the neck of the hourglass is your bandwidth. The larger your bandwidth is the more data you can get to your computer quickly. So if you're downloading a 100mb file, the 25mb/s package will be able to download it much faster than the 10mb/s.
