3 Steps to Finding an Internet Service Provider
Finding an internet service provider is easier than ever, especially if you follow these three simple steps:
- Check the availability of providers in your area, based on your specific address
- Compare providers and plans, including price, contract length, and most importantly, internet speed
- Place your order and follow the instructions given by your provider
Four Types of Internet Service
Depending on where you live, you may have access to every type of internet service. Conversely, you may only have one or two options.
Here is a breakdown of each type of service, complete with several pros and cons for each:
1. Cable Internet
Using the same type of cable that brings television service into your home, you can access the internet without the need for a phone line.
- Easy to bundle with other services
- Simple installation
- High availability
- Speed can slow down during peak usage times
2. DSL Internet
DSL stands for Digital Subscriber Line. It is a term used to describe a range of high-speed (broadband) communications services offered over the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN). Delivering the internet over a dedicated phone line , this option allows you to go online and use your phone at the same time.
- More affordable than many other options
- High availability
- Simple installation
- Slower speeds when compared to other options
3. Fiber Internet
Through the use of plastic or glass wires, fiber optic networks deliver reliable service at above average speeds. While availability is limited right now, an increasing number of providers are growing their network.
- Speeds as fast as 1 GBPS
- Limited availability
4. Satellite Internet
Just the same as satellite television, the internet is brought to your home via a satellite dish mounted on the exterior of your structure. With a clear view of the southern sky this is a viable option.
- Available to most people
- Competitive pricing
- Slower speeds
- Some providers enforce data limits
