Hi, im looking to find an authoritative classification of broadband and i seem to fail at finding it. Ive found serveral articles on various websites but am at a loss as to whether the sources would stand up to scrutiny, i.e. this classicification is written by joe bloggs = meaningless.

Also, the articles ive found all relate to bandwidth, with latency and packet loss not being mentioned, so am wondering if 'broadband' emcompasses these issues as well? Or is it just a term for 'high bandwidth'?

As far as semantics go broadband would seem to mean high bandwidth only, but maybe not officially?

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Broadband is a generic term that was introduced to differentiate the higher bandwidth available with DSL and Cable from the old 56K dial-up.

Bandwidth, latency and packet loss are terms that relate to all networks, regardless of the medium.
