Change Your Online Experience With High-Speed Internet
Having a slow Internet connection can take you from the middle of the online action to the backseat, waiting for a connection.
Who has the time for that?
With a high-speed DSL (digital subscriber line) connection, you don’t have to worry about slow Internet speeds holding you back.
- Stream full-length HD movies
- Download your favorite musician’s album in the blink of an eye
- Live chat with family across the country
- Battle it out with friends in the latest online multiplayer game
All of these are possible at the highest speeds available with a DSL Internet service provider.
High-speed Internet service options
How your Internet-enabled device connects online makes a difference. Your options for a high-speed ISP (Internet service provider) include:
- DSL Internet
- Cable Internet
- Satellite Internet
- Fiber-Optic Internet
A dial-up Internet connection is also an option. However, connections through a dial-up service are slower than DSL, cable and satellite. A dial-up Internet connection will also tie up your phone line while you’re online – meaning you can’t make phone calls while surfing the Internet.
Depending on where you live, however, your choice of internet providers may be more limited. For anyone living in a small town, their proximity to a DSL service provider or cable infrastructure may narrow their choices down to satellite Internet or dial-up.
That’s because high-speed DSL service and cable Internet are more predominant in densely populated cities and their surrounding suburbs.
If location isn’t a factor, how do you decide which Internet service provider is right for you?

What’s the right Internet speed for me?
DSL and cable Internet are two of the more popular high-speed Internet providers. But choosing the right Internet service provider largely depends on what you need to do online. While high-speed Internet might be the perfect solution for your professional and personal lifestyle, other Internet users might be content with slower speeds at a lower cost.
