What is broadband and why should you get it?

Last Updated: 1st of August, 2013

Broadband is a high speed Internet connection that allows you to surf the Internet, get your email and download files at up to 50 times the speed of a standard dial-up connection. Internet speeds greater than 256kbps are defined as broadband.

This is approximately up to 6 times faster than a normal dial-up connection. Permanent connection which means no more dialing up! (This applies if you use an ADSL/Jetstream router rather than modem.) Surf the Internet and receive phone calls at the same time!
