Comcast Provides a Good Internet Experience

By: Rachel Smith

One of the services that's become almost indispensable in the past decade or so is access to the Internet, and while it used to be that a dial up Internet connection- or even a DSL Internet connection- was enough for most people, a high speed broadband connection is becoming increasingly necessary in the average home. There are a lot of different reasons for this, but it really all boils down to the fact that if you don't have a high speed broad band Internet connection, it's just a lot tougher to take advantage of all that the Internet has to offer.
Of course, the downside of getting a high speed Internet connection is the expense involved with it. Fortunately, Comcast can help you get the Internet access that you need while helping you to control the cost of that service in several ways. The primary way in which Comcast will help you control the cost of the service is by bundling your Internet bill in with your cable TV and other telecommunications bills.
That said though, there are a lot of other ways that Comcast can help make having a high speed Internet connection more affordable. One is hardware. Comcast will not only provide you with the cable modem that you need to get online, but it will also give you a free wireless router that will allow you to get all of your computers and other WiFi enabled devices online as well. The fact that this high speed Internet connection provides download speeds of up to eight megabytes per second means that you have plenty of speed and bandwidth to share with the entire household. In fact, unless someone is downloading a really huge file, you could have a bunch of people online at once without any of them noticing each other. Of course if any of your computers don't have the ability to access a wireless connection, you'll need to upgrade them in order to take advantage of this hardware, but that's a simple and cheap upgrade and since most computers come with built in wireless connectivity these days it should be unnecessary. The fact is that this bonus feature makes it easier to get all of your devices on the Internet.
One of the benefits of a broad band Internet connection is that it's always on, and that means not having to wait in order to establish an Internet connection like you would with a dial up connection. But it also means that hackers have a lot more of an opportunity to break into your system and any spyware that sneaks onto your system has that much more of an opportunity to send data back out. For that reason it's important to have a firewall protecting your computer from such attacks, and Comcast provides the option of getting a firewall that will protect your computer and the data stored on it from the darker parts of the Internet. You'll also have free McAfee anti virus software and free updates for it for as long as you subscribe to Comcast's high speed Internet service.
When you add all of the features that Comcast provides for its customers to all of the diverse types of information and entertainment that's now available on the Web, Comcast is a good option for getting online.
