No, it's not.

Not that's important, but the term was coined many years ago by the
telecoms industry to distinguish high-bandwidth services from
low-bandwidth ones, such as telephony, voice band modems and ISDN, which
were referred to as narrowband services.

For example, ADSL was regarded as a broadband service.
