Which of the following transmission media has the highest bandwidth?

(A) Co axial cable

(B) Fiber optic cable

(C) Twisted pair cable

(D) None of these



Bandwidth of a channel is the range of frequencies available for transmission of data through that channel. Higher the bandwidth, higher the data transfer rate.

Checking the options

  • (A) Co-axial cable - It has moderately high bandwidth.
  • (B) Fiber optic cable - It has very high bandwidth.
  • (C) Twisted pair cable - It has low bandwidth.
  • (D) None of these 

Since Fiber Optic Cable has the highest bandwidth. 

So, the correct answer is (B)
