Are you at all thinking of switching over to a high speed Internet access from the much slower dial-up connection you currently have? You are not alone. It has become essential and affordable to have connections 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There are three types of high-speed access aside from satellite connections. The Digital Service Line (DSL), Cable and Wireless connections are provided by companies for monthly fees that are not as high as those for a satellite connection. These are just the things for an Internet surfer looking for fast streaming online videos and quick downloads.
Verizon is one of the largest DSL connection providers in America, providing Internet access at speeds up to 768kbps for downloads and 128kbps for uploads. The service costs $34.95 per month and comes with a personalized home page, 10 MB web space and 9 email accounts. The first month of services is provided free of charge.
But if you would rather connect through your cable operator, then Comcast is a good provider. Their current offer of $50 dollar cash back also gives customers a free cable modem and wireless router for $19.99 dollars for six months. You need one connection for the entire family and download speed is 70 times faster than a normal dial-up modem.
Frequent travelers prefer wireless connections to other high-speed connections. Boingo Wireless provides a connection for $21.95 dollars a month and is available in countless locations across the country and in the lobbies of all major hotels in America.
