Broadband refers to telecommunication in which a wide of frequencies(wide band) is available to transmit information. Because a wide band of frequencies is available. With there different frequencys they can travel down lots of different channels allowing more information to be able to be transmitted at any time.
Baseband is another type of system in which information is carried in digital form on a single unmultiplexed signal channel. “This usage pertains to a baseband network such as Ethernet and token ring local area networks.”
DSL CABLE DSL is more reliant but Cable is faster than DSL slower than cable. however it may not be as reliant. DSL is phone-line broadband. Cable is tv cable broadband (traditionally faster)

A modem is a box where is can convert the computers digitalsignal to frequencys to a telephone line or a cable televisionline. It makes the frequencys into digital data.

I interviewed Colin Baker a Technologistfrom TV3/ owner of the store Back from the Futurewhich is a technology shop located on Aingerstreet in Dublin.Heres what he said about his business and thebroadband he uses in his store………Back from the future
I interviewed Colin Baker the owner of bftf andasked him some questions and this is what hesaid….- What broadband do you use in your business?- Why?- How much do you pay for it?- Are you happy with it?“We use UPC because it has the fastest internet speed in Ireland. For example in comparison to eircom, eircomsfastest speed is UPCs slowest speed. UPCs fastest speed is 100Mb. We need this type of speed for the work we do.Most businesses would use UPC for the reasons that eircom and emoblie networks like wimax and emoblie are finefor personal use and everyday downloading etc but with UCPs fibre power broadband and their speed mostbusinessees would seek their broad band speed.We also use UPC because the technology behind it is thick copper wire and optic fibre network that offer a lot more.However we do have a back up internet in case anything goes wrong! We need to in our line of business. Theback upwe use is eircom. We pay 99e per month with UPC and we get unlimited download and upload usage. With UPCthey cater for most areas throughout Ireland but not all. Being a technology store we are extremely happy what UCPhas to offer and the are constantly upgrading and invention new and faster broadband.”
