In the computer networks, bandwidth is used as a synonym for data transfer rate – the amount of data that can be carried from one computer to another in a given time period (usually it count as in second). This kind of bandwidth is generally expressed in bits (of data) per second (bps). Occasionally, it’s expressed as bytes per second (Bps).

In the hosting ‘Bandwidth‘ define the rate at which data can be transferred to your computer from a website or internet service within a specific time. Therefore the amount of bandwidth you have generally provided by the hosting company (the bandwidth ‘strength’) determines the efficiency and speed of your INTERNET activity – that is, when you open web pages, download files.
