(Network Capacity)

The amount of traffic (activity) that a network can handle at one time.

More capacity means the network can handle more simultaneous users and/or faster data speeds.

In cellular wireless networks, capacity can vary by area.

Companies can add more capacity in several ways, including adding more base stations, upgrading to more efficient technology, and, in some cases, acquiring more radio spectrum.
