            THE BENEFITS OF BROADBAND

______________________________________________

 

Broadband is an always-on internet connection that gives you high-speed access

and downloads for a flat-rate monthly charge. Broadband is a complex word for a

simple but utterly profound change in the way the internet works.

Broadband means speed - and lots of it. Broadband ends the dull routine of a

dial-up connection. With broadband when you’re switched on, you’re always online,

with virtually instant access to all types of information and services:

1.       You communicate faster.

2.       You upload or download pictures faster.

3.       You can be more creative and functional because now you have no time or cost limits.

4.       You can more easily download a large file, send photos, watch news videos and hear

      streaming audio.

There are different ways of accessing the internet using a broadband connection.

Most people use a connection via their existing telephone or cable line. However, broadband

is also available using other technologies including radio, satellite and power lines.

Broadband services are 'always-on'. This means that broadband is a permanent connection

to the internet. A broadband connection lets you access the internet from the minute you switch

 on your computer. There's no need to dial up to the internet or log off once you've finished surfing.

You simply pay a flat fee each month with no additional charges for the amount of time you spend online.
