High Speed Broadband Internet Connections
Currently Be and UK Online are the notable ISPs who provide super fast broadband service using ADSL2+ technology. ADSL+2 technology comes with sophisticated devices which can use the maximum bandwidth capacity of a copper wire and send data at very high frequency. However, the high-frequency signals tend to degrade depending on the factors like the distance between the user and the exchange, the quality of the copper, electrical interference over the line or even bad weather conditions. Well, you can be assured of minimum 15 Mb speed, if your premises falls within two kms from exchange. Bear this factor in your mind when you go for High Speed broadband.
The central advantage of High Speed Broadband is that you can download huge files (of many gigabytes) like videos in matter of few minutes. While this speed makes your web browsing, emailing, online shopping and VoIP services incredibly faster, these faster download speeds are very much required if you wish to view MPEG4 and MPEG2 of High Definition TV channels online.
