Re: Relationship between frequency and bandwidth

Bav = f/10*bps

Available bandwidth typically depends on the carrier frequency, and as an estimate it is around one-tenth of the carrier frequency (bps)

Radio Wave (AM) f=1.7MHz, Bav=170Kbps
Radio Wave (TV) f=200MHz, Bav=20Mbps
Radio Wave (Mobile phone) f=900Mhz, Bav=90Mbps
Microwave (IEEE 802.11b) f=2,4GHz, Bav=240Mbps
Infra-red f=10^13, Bav= 1Tbps
