widebandIn telecommunications terminology, wideband is used to describe a "wide band" of frequencies within a spectrum. Wideband means that the transmission channel itself has a wider bandwidth than one voice channel. The term wideband itself is variously defined, however the ITU-T G.722 standard defines wideband as a bandwidth of up to 7 kHz.
