Broadband involves data transmission speeds.

We like to use the example of downloading a high definition surround sound movie. If you were to try to do that with dial-up (not broadband) it would take 20,000 minutes. The Pony Express could literally deliver it faster.

Standard DSL (a broadband service) still requires 370 minutes (just over six hours) to get your movie. I hope your date's not waiting.

In Kansas City and other gigabit cities, gigabit fiber to the home can deliver that same movie in just about a minute.
