It was not so long ago when we were struggling with the slow dial-up system of accessing the internet, but already most people seem to have forgotten the frustration of erratic connectivity after the introduction of the broadband internet. Since its advent, broadband internet became an instant hit due to its high-speed connectivity and constant availability. It can be accessed in four different ways, namely, cable, digital subscriber line (DSL), fiber-optics and direct satellite connections.
Good days are here to stay since the creation of the broadband internet folks! It’s always consistent and delivers up to expectation. Internet service providers (ISPs) offer packages that are suitable for your needs and you don’t have to pay for more than what you will be using.
Without any doubts, the advent of the broadband has helped people in almost all sectors of life. Both the rural and urban have benefited, especially businesses, helping them to increase their turnover rates significantly. The availability of consistent and faster access to the internet as well as quick downloads and uploading of files; couple this with faster email services, and it becomes a major boon to this sector.
The most important advantage of the broadband has been the amazing speeds of data transfer that it offers. As compared to the dial-up system, the speeds are sometimes hundred times faster with the broadband internet connections, thus making it very useful for people who download or upload heavy files on a regular basis. And most importantly, it reduces the time spent online while performing these tasks.
Another important feature is that broadband connectivity isn’t affected by bad weather, come rain or shine, making it more reliable. If you recall, the same was not the case with the dial-up system that had an irritating habit of becoming unavailable or very slow once the weather turned stormy.
Broadband internet use makes life so easy, as you are automatically signed in when you start your computer and there are no constant disconnection problems or ‘busy’ tones as with the older dial-up system. This of course also means that you can access more web pages easily and might end up surfing the net longer than you intended!
The best part of broadband connection is that you aren’t billed according to the amount of time you sit online. The earlier system was a certain loss in this aspect as one had to spend a long time online to download or upload files at its slower, erratic rates, resulting in unexpectedly larger bills. But with current ISPs providing unlimited plans, there is no restriction on the amount of time you spend online – true value for your money! But with broadband internet you can even use routers which enable multiple users to connect and surf the net using the same internet connection.
