You did it! You’ve decided to leave dial-up behind for the speed of broadband Internet access. So, what are you going to do with all that speed now?
You’re really in a great position to fully enjoy all the web and Internet have to offer. Gone are the days when you’re waiting for a dial-up signal (remember all the busy signals you used to get on dial-up?) Gone are the long delays waiting for a page to load or in downloading those email attachments.
Access time, page loads and downloading email attachments are just the beginning. The benefits of broadband access far exceed that. You’re free to surf where ever and what ever you can imagine. Searches become so fast there’s not a topic anyone can thrown at you that you won’t be able to use your favorite search engine to lookup information on.
Online bill pay, shopping, gaming, streaming audio, video, uploads, downloads, research, chats, forums, instant messaging, blogs, the list goes on. Not sure what any of those terms mean? Go to your favorite search engine and type the word or phrase in and find out! The search engines are getting smarter and smarter and the result pages are more accurate today than they have ever been.
Don’t worry about online time. You may have had dial-up access that limited your online experience by placing time limits on you. After your limit was up, the cost per minute could get very expensive.
Looking to learn HTML, XML or a programming language? There are free tutorials all over the internet just waiting for you.
Surfing the internet and the web can keep you busy enough. With broadband internet access, your possibilities don’t stop there. You can setup a home network and run more than one computer on your connection at a time! No more fighting over who gets how much time online! Don’t have a second computer (or need one) at home? No problem. You also have the option of going wireless! (Ok, you could go wireless with more than one computer as well!) Wireless really breaks down the walls! (Literally!) My primary computer at home is a laptop and I love the freedom to be anywhere in my home and be online! No more wires!
Now, with your broadband internet service you’re surfing better than ever. You may have decided to hook up a home network. You might even consider VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) for your phone service and actually leverage the cost of broadband internet service by saving money on your monthly phone bills!
So many more possibilities await you.
