Type of Internet Connection

Internet technology has developed quite a bit since the days of dial-up internet service (this type of service is not recommended). Today the most typical types of internet connections used by businesses are DSL (Digital Subscriber Line), ADSL (asymmetric digital subscriber line), VDSL (very high-speed digital subscriber line), wireless, fiber optics and cellular.

Strain on the Network

Like your computer, your internet connection can only handle so much activity on it. This is why the download and upload speeds are so important as they help dictate how quickly activities tied to the internet take. More importantly, how much strain they put on the network. Factors like number of users, number of applications being used and the overall hardware will all have an impact on the performance of your network. Be mindful of all of this when selecting the right provider.
