# Relation between bandwidth and data rate

I have trouble understanding the following from wikipedia - Bandwidth (Signal Processing)

A key characteristic of bandwidth is that any band of a given width can carry the same amount of information, regardless of where that band is located in the frequency spectrum

The higher the frequency the more the cycles and therefore shouldn't there be more information passing in a second?

• 200 Hz wide band carries same amount of information for any location in the frequency spectrum. – jojek Dec 12 '15 at 14:28
