Your ISP and the Future
The speed of your Internet access will depend on the type of Internet service providers you choose. A 56K modem is the original dial-up Internet access method and the cheapest Internet access. However, there are a few drawbacks, the 56k modem is the slowest of the Internet service providers and will tie up your phone line.
Looking for a high-speed Internet access? Then look for Internet service providers with cable or DSL modem services. These always-on services are fast becoming very popular. Even though DSL Internet access works over an ordinary copper telephone line, it does not tie up your phone line. On the other hand cable Internet service providers connect you to the Internet via a high-speed cable modem. Whether your Internet access is DSL or cable modem, you can now talk on the phone, watch TV and surf the net all at the same time!
Satellite Internet access is another choice for high-speed Internet service providers. This service is great for people looking who want high-speed Internet access, but are living in area that are not served by cable or DSL Internet service providers.
