ADSL & DSL Providers
Popular high speed Internet method. DSL (Digital Subscriber Line)
is a very high speed connection that uses the same wires as a regular
telephone line, however, DSL uses previously unused frequencies
of the line so that a user may connect to the Internet and talk
on the phone at the same time. The company that offers DSL will
usually provide the modem as part of the installation. DSL disadvantages:
Works better when you are closer to the provider's central office.
Is faster for receiving data than it is for sending data over the
Internet. Not available everywhere.
ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) is a form of DSL. ADSL is asymmetric in the sense that it uses most of the channel to transmit downstream to the user (download speed) and only a small part to receive information from the user (upload speed).
Good alternative to DSL, provides high speed Internet access using
your TV cable. Cable Internet connects users to the Internet through
digital (coaxial) cables. Cable Internet can sometimes require professional
installation and the speeds are not always consistent. It is however
widely available and very affordable.
Internet Service Providers
Connect to the Internet using your telephone line. This is a cheap
alternative but not very fast. The speed at which you connect to
the Internet is determined by a number of factors: the speed and
type of your modem, the quality of the phone lines in your area,
the amount of traffic on the Internet. Because of all of these factors,
you should not expect your connection speed to be exactly the same
speed as listed on your modem. Very often it is actually less.
Connect to the Internet while away from home. You will access Internet from a mobile (cell phone) network.
Internet Service Providers
Connect to the Internet while away from home. Access the Internet from
thousands of hot spots worldwide.
DSL or Cable not available in your area? Satellite Internet access
could be a solution. Satellite Internet connects users to the Internet
via satellite dish. Although it is relatively expensive and requires
professional installation it does allow high speed Internet access
to people in rural and isolated areas who only have dial up Internet
as an option.
Fibre Optic Internet Providers
Very fast. Uses fibre optic to transmit data literally at light-speed!
T1 Providers / DS1 Providers

T3 Providers / DS3 Providers
A T3 (or DS3) connection is a point-to-point dedicated line that provides six-hundred-seventy-two 64 kbit/s voice or data channels or in other words 28 T1 lines. A T3 is used to transmit digital signals at 44.736 Mbps.
