Your Internet connection can be dial-up, Cable or
DSL. Dial-up is cheaper (less than $10/month) but much slower
than the latter two. Therefore, you might want to either get a
Cable or DSL connection. However, the newest technologies make
today’s dial-up connection much faster than before and it may
also be the choice for those who have limited budget.
Some may ask about the difference between Cable and DSL
connections. Typically, you pay a little less for cable. You
get it quicker, and there is less that could go wrong. Also,
the cable companies that I've dealt with seem to have
competent support service. You may wait a while on hold to
talk to someone, but your problems can usually be fixed in one
call. With DSL, you're usually getting service through your
phone company and they have tier level customer support. You
may talk to several different people and have to make multiple
phone calls to get any problems solved.
As long as it is working, you'd be happy with either service.
