What is Bandwidth?

Bandwidth is a rate of data transfer, generally a metric of how much data can be sent in a given time period that is mandated by the stress and traffic caused on a server. Generally, this refers to the amount of traffic caused from streaming (higher audience and higher bitrate translates to more bandwidth being consumed).
