What You Should Know About Internet Broadband Access
This article is dedicated as a coaching guide to provide Internet users with information on the fast Internet broadband access available today and the different types of broadband service you can select.
WHAT IS BROADBAND?
BROADBAND is the common term for a very fast connection to the Internet. It allows users to download online entertainment such as video clips and music, listen to digital radio, send e-mail faster and speeds up everything they do online.
A broadband service can transmit information at up to 40 times the speed of a dial-up modem connection. As the connection is always on, like water or electricity, users don’t need to dial up every time they want to log on.
Broadband ADSL also lets people surf the internet and use the telephone at the same time.
Broadband is revolutionising online activities everywhere for businesses, entertainment and public services. Faster speeds of up to 160 times a dial-up connection will bring about new services, including internet-TV and video on demand, across home, business and public life.
