right? So from class 10 yrs ago I remember that bandwidth is technically not a speed rating. it's more akin to how much water can fit through a hose rather than how fast the water is flowing. ok, that makes sense and I accepted that. but the other day I thought of a question i should have had back then, what is the speed? would it be the transmission speed of electrons through the medium? would it be something else I haven't thought of? if bandwidth is HOW MUCH, what is HOW FAST?
