What is Broadband? Broadband is a form of telecommunication which a wide band of frequencies is available to transmit data. The broader the bandwidth of a channel increases the amount of information which can be sent at any given time and is considered multiplexed as it can carry out a number of task simultaneously.
The types of Broadband thatare available in Ireland ASDL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) Cable (Coaxial Cable) Mobile Broadband Wireless Broadband Satellite Broadband
ASDL ASDL Broadband allows more data to be sent over existing copper telephone lines, when compared to traditional modem lines. A special filter, called a microfilter is installed on a subscribers telephone line to allow both ADSL and regular voice (telephone) services to be used at the same time.
Coaxial Cable Broadband Coax as it’s also know is provided by local television providers and is able to transmit the information from the world wide web as well as delivering a television service and even a telephone service upon that.
Mobile Broadband Mobile Broadband is a portable device known commonly as a dongle which can be connected directed to your laptop or desktop. It picks up information using 3G mobile phone technology. As the information is delivered from the mobile phone masts you can stay connected while on the move or when abroad.

The wireless network card in your laptop/desktop then picks up the signal and re-encodes the information received. Like radios they can be set to different frequencies is a channel becomes to busy.

The Business Choice From reading previous customers reviews and by looking at how much data the organisation would need to transfer on a monthly basis, I have come to the decision of choosing The Digiweb DSL Personal Broadband.
