The term broadband internet connection refers to an internet connection with a high data transfer rate. However, there is no clear definition how high the speed of the connection must be to be considered a broadband internet connection. In addition, technological advances in communication technologies and the resulting constant increases in bandwidth continue to shift the margin upward. A broadband internet connection should typically have download speeds of several megabit per second. The upload bandwidth is usually significantly slower. Certain professional and more and more private internet applications can only be used with a broadband internet connection with a high bandwidth. These include applications such as teleworking, VoIP telephony, video conferences, transferring large files, streaming videos, online TV, managing pictures on cloud storage and some online games.
