Comcast Offers You The Best

By: Julia Hall

If you haven't experienced true high speed Internet access in , then you really don't know what you're missing! That's because there's really nothing like having the freedom that a high speed Internet connection affords. A true high speed Internet connection will let you visit web sites with flashy multimedia applications built into them, as well as simple text based web sites with equal ease. It will let you take full advantage of virtual reality, both in the form of multiplayer online computer games that you can play with people from all over the world and virtual worlds like Second Life where the possibilities are limited only by the imagination. A high speed Internet connection also means that you'll never have to be intimidated by downloading files, whether they're simple digital photos or audio files, or even full length movies or huge software packages! In short a high speed Internet connection can give you full access to all of the wonders of the World Wide Web.

However, these days it can be difficult to figure out what exactly constitutes a high speed Internet connection. This is partly because of the fact that Internet connections in general have gotten faster over the years and partly because many companies are trying to market anything that's faster than dial up as a high speed Internet connection.

Fortunately Comcast clears up a lot of this confusion by offering Internet access that's truly high speed, and yet is in the same price range as those services that are much slower.

In other words, with Comcast you can have true high speed Internet access without having to pay huge amounts of money for it!

Comcast 's success as an Internet service provider really comes down to the technology that it uses to provide Internet access. Basically, while many of its competitors use technology that transmit data over phone lines, this company uses the same digital cable technology that delivers its TV service. Since cable TV provides high quality video and audio while phone lines are designed to transmit relatively low quality audio, a cable is naturally better at transmitting large amounts of Internet data much more quickly than a phone line! In fact, Comcast's high speed Internet service provides download speeds that are consistently four times faster than the absolute best that phone line based DSL technology can deliver. At the peak performance possible with Comcast's special Power Boost feature, those download speeds are up to six times faster than DSL's!

Besides all of the great things that you can do with Comcast's high speed Internet service, Comcast can also provide you with the ultimate TV entertainment through its digital cable TV service. With a subscription to its digital cable TV, you'll be able to enjoy programming packages with well over two hundred and fifty channels that include all of your favorite national cable TV channels, your local channels, premium movie packages from HBO and Showtime, and even plenty of HDTV channels! You'll also have access to Comcast's unique video on demand services- like Premiums On Demand and ON DEMAND- both of which give you a lot more control over how your watch TV shows and movies.

Comcast even offers a high quality phone service, that it calls Digital Voice, for far less than an equivalent calling plan from a traditional phone company. In addition to all of the features that people have come to rely on- like caller ID- this service also gives you all of your long distance calls to numbers in North America for free!
