On the Internet Using Ancient and New Broadband Internet

By: Ronald Jensen

Nobody can live with no access to the online world anymore. For almost everybody, the Internet has become a need that is almost as central to our life as food and drink.

Not so many years ago, we all used traditional modems to connect with. Officially, the modem could go 56 kbps, but in reality it was much slower. I was lucky if I could get more than 20-25 kbps on a good day, so I always had time to get a cup of coffee while the webpage was loading.

Luckily the Internet doesn’t require that much patience anymore to go online as it did before. These days a lot of us have a broadband connection, so we can connect with speeds from 512 kbps and upwards. Depending on your location, you can very well be surfing the net with no less than 2.000 kbps – or 100 times faster than I were with my classic telephone modem.

The net has changed in many ways because of our broadband. These days, websites doesn’t contain text and nothing more. Most often there are also lots of photos, graphics and sometimes even a video.

Especially videos are a very nice addition to the net, since live pictures makes it easier to talk about complicated stuff. Just think about how difficult it is to tell how to fix a computer using only text and how easy it is with a video.

At some point in the near future, we will probably be surfing the internet with faster and faster broadband connections. The fastest broadband connections for sale in my part of the country are approx. 20.000 kbps, but I will not be surprised if I see 100.000 kbps connections within the next two years.

In addition, we will begin to connect with more and more mobile devices. We will see lots of mobile broadband offers in the next few years. Nice if you have to go on the Internet in many different locations, but don’t forget that mobile broadband is much slower than cable broadband.

But I hope that maybe one day we will have a combination of the advantages of both types of broadband connections. A truly mobile broadband offer with the speed of cable broadband. That must really be wonderful, because then you would not need to worry about what kind of broadband connection to buy.

Let us not think about things that have not yet been seen anywhere. For now, you still must choose between cable and mobile broadband connections – and only you know what is the best choice for your individual needs. Do you need speed or mobility?
