Broadband is often called high-speed internet, because it usually has a high rate of data in general, any connection to the customer of 256 kbit/s (0.256 Mbit/s) or more is considered broadband internet. The international Telecommunication Union Standardization Sector (ITU-t) recommendation 1.113 has defined broadband as a transmission capacity that is faster than primary rate ISDN, at 1.5 to 2 Mbit/s. The FCC definition of broadband is 200 kbit/s (0.2 Mbit/s) in one direction, and advanced broadband is at least 200 kbit/s in both directions. The OECD has defined broadband as 256 kbit/s in at least one direction and this bit rate is the most common baseline that is marketed as “broadband” around the world. There is no specific bitrate defined by the industry, however, and “broadband” can mean lower-bitrate transmission methods. Some Internet Service Providers (ISPs) use this to advantage, in marketing lower-bitrate connections as broadband.
The standard technology in most areas is DSL, followed by cable modem. Newer…...

Broadband Internet access indeed is the most used system of access to the Internet due to its fast access speeds. The two trends this paper discusses is mobile broadband and cable connection. Mobile broadband and cable broadband services both allow Internet users to get their Internet-ready devices online. While both cable broadband and mobile broadband connect to the Internet, there are differences in the way these two services work. The type of service that is best for one person may not be the best choice for another, particularly if a user travels a lot. Cable Internet services guarantees some restriction in regards to where a subscriber is able to connect to the Internet. Mobile broadband services allow individuals to access Internet anywhere at any time. Both mobile broadband and cable broadband services allow a user to create a network that connects other Internet users nearby.

Wired Ethernet V. Rural Broadband VI. Satellite Internet VII. Mobile Broadband VIII. Power line Communication IX. DSL X. Wireless ISP 3. Broadband Services I. In Telecommunication System II. In Data Communication 4. Bibliography 5. Appendix Introduction Broadband Internet access, often shortened to just broadband, is a high data rate Internet access—typically contrasted with dial-up access using a 56k modem. Dial-up modems are limited to a bitrate of less than 56 kbit/s (kilobits per second) and require the full use of a telephone line—whereas broadband technologies supply more than double this rate and generally without disrupting telephone use. Although various minimum bandwidths have been used in definitions of broadband, ranging up from 64 kbit/s up to 2.0 Mbit/s, the 2006 OECD report is typical by defining broadband as having download data transfer rates equal to or faster than 256 kbit/s, while the United States (US) Federal Communications Commission (FCC) as of 2009, defines "Basic Broadband" as data transmission speeds exceeding 768 kilobits per second (Kbps), or 768,000 bits per second, in at least one direction: downstream (from the......

...Information and communications technology Information and communications technology (ICT) is often used as an extended synonym for information technology (IT), but is a more specific term that stresses the role of unified communications and the integration of telecommunications (telephone lines and wireless signals), computers as well as necessary enterprise software, middleware, storage, and audio-visual systems, which enable users to access, store, transmit, and manipulate information. The term ICT is also used to refer to the convergence of audio-visual and telephone networks with computer networks through a single cabling or link system. There are large economic incentives (huge cost savings due to elimination of the telephone network) to merge the telephone network with the computer network system using a single unified system of cabling, signal distribution and management. Information and communication technology expenditure (% of GDP) in Pakistan was reported at 4.37 in 2008, according to the World Bank. Information and communications technology expenditures include computer hardware (computers, storage devices, printers, and other peripherals); computer software (operating systems, programming tools, utilities, applications, and internal software development); computer services (information technology consulting, computer and network systems integration, Web hosting, data processing services, and other services); and communications services (voice and data......

Broadband Internet

...Running head: Broadband Internet Changed Our Lives Broadband Internet Changed Our Lives The internet is an amazing thing; people can get news services in real time, communicate with people from around the globe, and even download media in nearly any format. All this wouldn’t be possible without the inception of broadband internet. What is broadband internet you might ask? Broadband is a term referring to a high bandwidth or carrying capacity of a communications line. There are different technologies used to achieve this: cable modems and DSL modems are the most common implementations in the United States. When the internet was first implemented, communications speeds between users were very slow compared to today’s standards. 56kbps (dial-up) was commonplace and something users thought they would never max out. Several years later the internet grew to be an extremely large network and businesses started to see the potential to distribute their products online. Business websites started using high resolution graphic, streaming videos, and animations which put a strain on the standard dial up connections of most individuals. It was evident that something needed to be done. Internet Service Providers developed broadband in order to meet the growing need for users to communicate at higher speeds. The two most common implementations are cable modems and DSL modems. Cable modems, like the name implies use the coaxial cable as its transmission medium and......

...The Web The Web is at the heart of many ways in which technology has affected communication. It enables us to instantly communicate across the world for the price of a broadband subscription, which has had a dramatic impact on how we can keep in touch with family or do business with colleagues working remotely. While this has made it easier to make contact with others, it has also made it more difficult to switch off. Communicating with those we know is now much simpler and more convenient than it ever has been, at the risk of making our lives ever more hurried and busy. Cell Phones Cell phones and other mobile devices such as tablets have accentuated the impact of the Web. Not only are we accessible every time we sit down at a computer, we are now accessible from wherever we are. Our mobile phones enable us to communicate with hundreds or even thousands of contacts across a myriad of services and platforms with a few taps on the screen. It is no longer necessary to use face-to-face contact and speech to communicate – we can use short SMS messages, or leave a voicemail, or send a tweet from our phones. Again, the convenience offered by all of these extra channels is counterbalanced by the additional effort required to monitor them all. Email Emailing is the letter-writing of the 21st century, but it's so much more besides. It enables us to send short ideas or thoughts as well as lengthy missives, it enables us to send the same message to dozens of people at the......

Haste Makes Waste in Broadband Process

...Makes Waste in the Broadband Stimulus Process By Charles Bobo The Broadband Stimulus program is the equivalent of a 'land grab', comparable to the Oklahoma Land Rushes of 1889 and 1893, events that coined the term, Sooners. Companies big and small are scrambling to grab their piece of rural America broadband real estate. Consider there are seven times more funding requests than funds to disburse in round one. At first glance it appears many of the applicants either misunderstood the NOFA (Notice of Funds Availability) guidelines, or just chose to ignore them. The question looms, how is a small organization, without the necessary manpower or resources, able to submit an application without being rejected due to the slightest violation of a guideline? Before we address that question, let’s review a few of the program’s basic facts and challenges. An Excellent Program in Spirit The Broadband Stimulus Program is an excellent program in spirit. According to statistics, more than 10-million residents in rural communities through this country are without high-speed broadband; which, according to the NOFA, is a very modest 768k. That’s a speed most of us upgraded from 10-years ago. But to rural Americans, it equates to exchanging the mule for a tractor. It provides farmers with access to agriculture markets, students with access to school, and families with access to an incredible array of tools and opportunities to improve their quality of life. The broadband program is......
