Broadband

What is Broadband?

The term broadband commonly refers to high-speed Internet access that is always on and faster than the traditional dial-up access.

How is broadband different from dial-up service?

  • Broadband service provides higher-speed of data transmission. It allows more content to be carried through the transmission “pipeline.”
  • Broadband provides access to the highest quality Internet services—streaming media, VoIP (Internet phone), gaming, and interactive services. Many of these current and newly-developing services require the transfer of large amounts of data that may not be technically feasible with dial-up service. Therefore, broadband service may be increasingly necessary to access the full range of services and opportunities that the Internet can offer.
  • Broadband is always on. It does not block phone lines and there is no need to reconnect to network after logging off.
  • Less delay in transmission of content when using broadband.
