Attenuation

Attenuation means the loss of a signal.

So in broadband terms, it refers to the loss of the broadband signal as it makes its way from your exchange to your home. Attenuation can be caused by the distance between you and the exchange, or poor quality cables. Attenuation is measured in decibels (Db).
