Glossary

Like most industries there are many different words, acronyms, and definitions. The Broadband world is no different. Here we will attempt to provide you with some of the most common terminology used to help you better understand what Broadband is all about.

While we may give further explanations or examples, many of these definitions come straight from the FCC instead of us trying to come up with our own definitions.

Rather than us come up with our own Glossary of terms and definitions we will utilize the list from the National Broadband Plan document. They have a nice list of common abbreviations relating to Broadband in Appendix B and their glossary is in Appendix C.

The Appendix document can be found on the National Broadband site.
