Internet has become an important aspect of our life. It was great! when we sent our first email with a dial up(56kbps) connection. But things move much faster than we are. Switch to the broadband era and move faster as others.
Broadband service has helped us transfer data at a much faster rate. It allows to browse the internet and speak through the same phone line at the same time, which was not possible in dial up. Data is transferred in a bandwidth. Wider the bandwidth, the more you can send data. Sending the data using a broader bandwidth is termed as “broadband”. Its simple to install a home broadband service. The computer or the notebook should have a Ethernet card or a network interface card (NIC) installed. Almost all the recent computers are installed with a NIC. The telephone company will provide you with a broadband enabled telephone line at your home. This telephone line is connected to a splitter which in turn splits the connection into two. One for the telephone and the other for the modem which will be provided by the telephone company. From the modem a Ethernet cable will be used to connect to your computer.
The telephone line is optional or some times bundled. So its the users wish to choose the right package. Users can also connect multiple computers using a wire or go wireless within the home by installing a router in between the modem and the computer. Billing will be either on usage or based on the plan that the user has chosen. The speed of the internet might go down when you have multiple computers connected for a basic package. So the user has to choose a higher speed if there are multiple computers. Also the user should have a wireless card installed in the notebook or desktop computer to go wireless.
Home broadband service is provided at different speed ranges and by a number of ISP’s like BT, AT&T, Orange, etc., Its the fast, secure and most reliable internet source.
