Improve Your Internet Experience

By: Ken Snow

How quickly the computer has changed the way we live, think and perhaps even dream! Computer technology itself has evolved so quickly over 10 years as have the Internet services. It wasn't too long ago that dial-up services meant one had to wait forever before connecting. At least that's how it seems on hindsight. Actually, when dial-up services were launched, it seemed the greatest thing in the world! However, we tend to take progress in our stride and always want better. So when high speed Internet made its entry, those of us who had it were ecstatic with the speeds and those of us who didn't, just turned green with envy and watched.

A question most people are asked is which service should they use? Do they prefer DSL or cable Internet? But it all boils down to what is right for you. What is the service provider offering me? What is it going to cost me? Does my usage justify the higher cost? What really, do I want? Most people would agree that in this day and age of fast access, dial-up services seem like dinosaurs that are slow and cumbersome. The slow speed, the slow connectivity, the sound – they all add up to prehistoric compared to what's available today. The good news is that the cost of high speed internet connectivity has come down considerably and down is the only way it's going to go in the days to come. So what seemed like a luxury is fast coming into the "necessary" category, especially as prices spiral downwards.

Across the US, high speed internet service providers like Roadrunner and Comcast ensure good connectivity at great speeds. For people to whom the computer is essential for work and as a means of communication, internet cable services are very much a necessity. For the young gaming community of this world, slower speeds would be unthinkable. All in all, with the passage of time, the higher speed that cable internet companies offer will soon be the norm, not a choice one has to make.

Do you still use dial-up? I hope not. Dial-up is certainly an outdated concept. Why even bother with the horrific sound and the turtle-like speed when you could be enjoying cable high speed Internet at a decent price? If you have not already switched to high speed internet, then jump online today. I think you will be surprised at the reasonable rates you will find. While some people like to save a few bucks and go with DSL, I don't recommend this. I surf the web for work and play far too much to tolerate any slower speeds. Nowadays you can find cable high speed Internet services for very reasonable rates in most areas of the country and the whole novelty of the technology has worn off. Now high speed Internet has become the norm for many households. Check what is available in your area now and improve your internet experience.
