THE BENEFITS OF BROADBAND
High speed Internet access enables much faster downloading and means web pages and emails appear almost instantly. Music and video can also be downloaded and enjoyed in real time. A permanent, fast, always-on connection makes using the Internet convenient, easy and enjoyable. The biggest advantage lies in the fixed monthly costs versus the pay per minute / second of traditional dial up.

ADSL is an abbreviation of asymmetric digital subscriber line – which basically refers to broadband through a telephone line.
Unlike dial-up, which uses the phone line to make a connection, ADSL actually works alongside the frequencies used for voice telephone calling, therefore allowing you to continue to make phone calls while using the internet. It enables faster data transmission through a single connection, but allows users to download data and make voice calls at the same time.
The distinguishing factor of ADSL is that the flow of data is greater in one direction than it is in the other – hence the name ‘asymmetric’. This is why download speeds are far greater than upload speeds. Consequently, ADSL broadband is usually marketed towards passive internet customers who rely on downloads but have little emphasis on uploads. The top speeds for downloads are usually 8Mb, and the top speeds for uploads are usually below 1Mb.
