Broadband technology development from low speed modems to broadband internet access as well as broadband telephone connections make substantial differences in our lives.
In this age of rapid growth and transformation, regardless of whether in science, technology, transportation or diffusion of information, speed is the driving force behind each tremendous change in advancement. With the innovation of broadband access, we are connected at a neck breaking speed and tasks can be completed within a few seconds.
The internet has made astonishing contributions in the transmission and communication of data and information as well as making it possible for business to be conducted in every corner of the planet. Business partners such as the buyers, sellers or agents do not have to meet together in person to discuss and agree on their business arrangements. They make use of modern technology as tools of communication, broadband internet access being one of them.
However, before the introduction of broadband internet access, access to the internet was restricted and limited to dial-up connections only. In addition to the cost of installing a separate telephone line for the access, it is also very time consuming. Uploading and downloading of information or files were done at a snail’s pace, with a low speed 28.8 Kbps modems.
Basically, broadband internet access is a high capacity and high-speed transmission medium. It provides the user with a low cost but higher data-transmission rate internet connection in terms of speed but with no compromise on the quality.
Broadband internet access transfers data over a broad bandwidth connection from multiple independent network carriers. This broadband technology is usually done by establishing the different bandwidth channels on fiber-optic cable connections, through telephone lines or via complex satellite systems. These huge volumes of data are transmitted in the form of signals. Such connection supports a wide range of frequencies and usually allows two or more signals to share a medium simultaneously.
The biggest effect of broadband access is in the transmission of data, video and voice over long distances. It is ideal for a variety of different purposes such as streaming multimedia including the downloading of large files of video pictures, movies, music and various forms of computer games as well as the broadband telephone connections or VoIP.
