  • 22. Ways i connect to the internet The internet can be used for many reasons and has now become a part of everyday life, questioning how we dealt without it.

  • 25. Internet Networks  UPC delivers broadband through Cable and is supplied throughout my house hold. Before connecting to UPC my household was supplied by Eircom which was a fair server but price was a problem. When switched to Vodafone the price was reasonable for landline and broadband but the signal service was terrible, disconnecting constantly. Finally when moved to UPC it ticked all the correct boxes and I was able to connect to the Wi-Fi on my laptop and mobile phone with no problems.
  • 26. The use of internet in my everyday life (Application)  The availability of internet has changed my everyday life; I use it at home, college, work and everyday activities.
