Bandwidth - Refers to the maximum amount of data that can be transferred through a communication channel in a given time. It is usually measured in bits per second for digital communications.

Broadband - Systems that transmit data at high speed using high bandwidth capacity communication channel.

Central Office - Incumbent carrier facility where subscriber lines are connected to ILEC switching equipment.

Collocation - A location where a competitive carrier network interconnects with the network of an incumbent carrier's central office.

CLEC - Competitive Local Exchange Carrier; a category of telephone service provider that offers local exchange services in competition with those of the incumbent carrier.
