With an increase in the use of the internet in the daily lives people all over world, the need for faster and non-interrupted internet connection has become a basic necessity. Many people currently depend on the internet for many services eg banking. For many, dial-up is a memory they wish to always have in the past. With the use of broadband, this memory sure remains in the past.
Some of its many advantages include;
Faster Internet Connection
This is one if the main advantages of using broadband. It also provides bigger streams of bandwith and very high downloading speeds of up to 2-2.5 Mps depending on the amount of congestion and the distance from the base station. This provides an ample surfing speed for any work one wants to carry out. It is really fast in terms of upload,data transfer, and download. Moreover, the connectivity is better with images,files, and the data is transmitted at higher speeds.
There Is No Need For A Telephone Line For Connection
Unlike the dial-up connection, the broadband is described as an “always on” connection. This is because there is no need of dialing up or logging in to be connected. All that is needed is opening the browser and begin browsing because the connection is always there.
Fewer Interruptions When Surfing
Broadband also allows the use of the phone line and the internet simultaneously. This means that these two lines, the data line and the phone line are not connected. One can use the phone line while browsing is still going on unlike before when either one could be used at a specific instance. This therefore ensures fewer disruptions when surfing and someone else is using the phone.
Convenient And Affordable
In the case of hourly charges, dial-up is cheaper than broadband. However in the long run, the cost with broadband is cost efficient. This is because of it being faster and effective when large files are involved.
