a different question on bitrates

This is just a general question that is confusing me!

When selecting the bitrate to encode the stream on the Shoutcast DSP WinaAmp plugin, there are two 48kbps mono types, 22.050kHz and 44.100kHz, and there are also two with 56kbps.

I assume that the bitrate specifies how much bandwidth is necessary to listen to the stream. But surely the stream will be compressed at whatever best quality the encoder can make of the sound at that bitrate. What's the difference and what shall I select? 22.05.kHz or 44.100kHz? Help!

If you're sure it's 56kbps and mono, I think 44kHz fits it better. I don't know what 22kHZ mono would sound like at that bitrate... I think it's too much.
