Bands like the Spice Girls were Broad Bands.. . Web definition:. A transmission medium capable of supporting a wide range of frequencies, typically from audio up to video frequencies. It can carry multiple signals by dividing the total capacity of the medium into multiple, independent bandwidth channels, where each channel operates only on a specific range of frequencies.

I like nan’s answer, but on a more practical note: the term broadband is a current buzz word phrase for any internet or network connection which allows for the transmission of data faster than what is usual over a phone line using a modem. Cable connections and DSL service are considered broadband.
