High Speed Internet
High speed is often one of the most sought-after features of an internet plan, but with so many different types of high speed internet, it can be confusing choosing a broadband plan that’s just right for you.
So, what sort of high speed connection is right for you? Let’s look at some of the different internet connections available.
Cable-It’s Not Just for Television!
Cable internet is very popular with residential internet users. It uses the same infrastructure that cable television uses to access your home. This enables cable internet providers to serve its users with fast and reliable connections.
The World of ADSL Explained
ADSL uses telephone lines to transmit data instead of cables. ADSL is popular with busy families because it’s quick and efficient and the internet can be accessed at the same time as making and receiving calls on your home phone line.
- ADSL2+ can be up to three times faster than the average ADSL connection!
- ADSL is not available in all areas, so be sure to check with local providers.
Free Yourself with Wireless Internet
Also known as Wi-Fi, wireless internet is cable-free. A cluster of interconnected access points referred to as ‘hot spots’ create a networked area that enables users to connect to the internet wirelessly. Because Wi-Fi is run on radio waves, rather than any solid connections, the reliability is not as great as other connections, but it still provides great high speed internet.
