Bandwidth in its simplest terms refer to the amount of data that sent to and from visitors across your website during a period of time, usually measured in a month. As many website newbies are confused about how network bandwidth works and many of them asked me many times about how much bandwidth will his / her website need, in this article, I will explain this technical term plainly.
What is bandwidth?
When you visit an online website, you are actually downloading a file, which can be an HTML web page, a gif image, a video files, a flash files or a combination of all of these. With the download of these files to your computer via web server, users are able to view your website through web browser. Any time when a user downloads a file, it can be translated into the data is transferred via the server. And according to the size of your web page, the data being transferred various. For instance, the size of your homepage is 1 KB, every time people view this particular page will cost you 1 KB data transfer. If there are 100 visitors get through your homepage every day, then 100 KB of data will be transferred per day, 3000 KB per month. Of course, calculate how much bandwidth will your website requires is not that simple.
How much bandwidth will your website need?
When comparing different web hosting packages from different web hosting companies, you may notice that the allotted bandwidth variously very, from a very small amount of bandwidth to large or even unlimited bandwidth. Therefore, it may be difficult for you to choose the right solution with the appropriate bandwidth. How much bandwidth is most suitable for you anyway? Well. I think you should take these following three factors into accounts: a. How many visitors will visit your website? B. How many pages will the visitors view? C. The size of your web page files, especially if there is big images file or video file in your website. For example, if an average size of a web page (images included) is 50 kilobytes and each visitor to your website viewed an average of 4 pages per month, 5,000 unique visitors to your website every month, then the total amount of bandwidth will be 50KB * 4 * 5000 about 1GB. This figure is reasonable, however, it is also a wise choice to go for provider who offers at least 2 GB and prepare for any eventuality. And this is also a rough estimate, ie it is not required to download images every time the visitor make a hit to your website, since the browser will store the duplicate images in the computer. You should think carefully about your situation, if you expect to launch a forum, then it will cost your more bandwidth than the ordinary websites.

Modern technology has changed the way we do many things in our lives. Now modern technology has come to the golf course.

Not all personal golf GPS devices are alike however. Some come preloaded with all relevant information, including all the measurements for every hole on every golf course in the United States. Others you will need to access the devices website and download the information you need. Either way, having this information will allow you to completely change the way you play the game.
Your golf buddies will wonder at the vast improvement in your game. Whether or not you let them in on your little secret is entirely up to you, but be warned, if you tell them, they are likely to want to borrow yours. This will level the playing field and you may go back to losing a round or two.
