Re: Definition

If a frequency is defined as the number of oscillations, then DAB is "faster", in that it has more oscillations (if a shopping basket packing race, it would "win" and be faster at packing the shopping bags).

While not completely detailed, their explanation was not "wrong", it just focused on the speed of data delivery in total, not the speed of the signal propagation or delivery of a single bit.
