    So let me get this straight. A baseband signal is a single frequency, whereas a broadband signal uses multiple frequencies. Is that right?

    Not really. Ethernet is regarded as baseband (100Base-T - the Base in the name meaning baseband). But Ethernet is a single complex signal spread out over a lot of frequencies, from 0 up.

    As one of those articles points out - the voice part of a telephone connection is baseband - and covers from 0 up to about 3.5kHz.
