Network Bandwidth

The rate at which the network can deliver data to the destination point

The amount of data that can be transmitted over a network in a fixed amount of time. Bandwidth is the fundamental networking parameter, and is usually measured in kilobits, megabits or gigabits per second (Kbps, Mbps, or Gbps).

Rate of transfer

Available bandwidth determined by wire and hardware

You may have High-Bandwidth and bad (high) latency (eg. Satellite)
