Internet Broadband: Wireless Area Network (WLAN) Technology
From the paper:
Broadband is usually used to refer to a type of Internet connection. Simply speaking, a broadband connection is a connection that allows for extremely high speeds and supports data, voice, and sometimes even video information. It is considered broad because multiple kinds of information can travel across the wire, or band. High speed means that in addition to surfing the web without delays, you will also be able to enjoy multimedia-rich applications such as streaming audio and videoconferencing. Broadband connections are typically always on, so you don’t have to spend extra time dialing in to your service provider; as soon as the computer attached to the service is turned on, you can start browsing.
