A term describing high-speed internet access. As defined by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), any connection faster then 200kbps is considered broadband, while the technical definition is any signal with a wide bandwidth (as relating to its radio-frequency properties, regardless of the data transfer rate).

The usual example of broadband internet is via a cable modem or DSL.

In common usage, service provided by Ethernet is considered broadband, although technically, Ethernet uses narrowband signaling.

Broadband internet access in Houghton, Michigan is available from Charter Communications and SBC.
