This benefits customers whose require a continuous level of bandwidth. Burstable bandwidth refers to a connection in which the customer's bandwidth can increase for short periods of time on an as-needed basis. This gives customers a less expensive solution when their bandwidth needs are generally lower than at times such as large, periodic data transfers.
