As per Wikipedia, “Packet loss occurs when one or more packets of data travelling across a computer network fail to reach their destination. Packet loss can be caused by a number of factors, including signal degradation over the network medium due to multi-path fading, packet drop because of channel congestion, corrupted packets rejected in-transit, faulty networking hardware, faulty network drivers or normal routing routines.”
