  • DSL - DSL comes from your local phone exchange via the old copper wires. Your ISP will test and activate the line for you.Your modem or router plugs into your phone socket, along with a microfilter (a small plastic box). Your computer needs to connect to the modem/router as well, either with wires or wirelessly.Cable - Some Cable TV companies offer a cable internet connection via their existing wiring.Satellite - Is set up using a satellite dish. This is sometimes the only option for rural areas to receive Broadband.Mobile - A small USB device called a ‘dongle’ ,or connecting your computer up to a compatible mobile phone enables you to access the internet wherever there is a mobile phone signal available.Fibre Optics - Are tiny wires that transmit pulses of light. They are much faster than ADSL cables. This means you can get internet speeds up to five times faster than the fastest ADSL connections.The companies have to replace all the wires in the ground across the country, so fibre-optics aren't available in a lot of places yet.
