Essentially, Broadband is not all that different from your existing dial-up connection. The equipment is very similar; you still have a modem, but a different type, and in many cases the connection is still made through the phone line.

The main difference is the fact that the internet connection is always on twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. You can access the internet from the minute you switch on your computer, and even have multiple computers sharing the same connection across a network.

You pay a flat monthly fee, no matter how much you use the internet, and the connection is much, much faster.

Broadband will change the way that you use the internet for entertainment, communication and business.
