    • 2. Introduction to Broadband Broadband is a high data rate internet connection. It is an ‘Always On’ internet service. It is measured is Megabits per second (MBPS). It is much faster than dial-up connection There are many different service providers

    • 6. Wireless A base (modem/router) transmits & receives WiFi signals that connect to a device, providing wireless internet access. Pros  High speed internet connection  No wires= Less mess & danger hazards Cons  Bad weather causes bad signal  Anyone can access it if not security enabled
    • 7. ADSL The most common form of broadband ‘The more you pay, the better your connection’ Works from but doesn’t interfere with phone lines Pros  ‘Always On’ broadband  Most widely available  Cost effective Cons  Usage efficiency related to distance from provider  Fast download but much slower upload speed
    • 8. Cable Connectivity is delivered through coaxial copper cables using a cable modem (like cable TV) Competitive providers Pros  Strong competition = competitive rates and speeds offered  ‘Always on’ broadband  Relatively cheap Cons  High security risk - Firewall needed  Not all phone and TV cables compatible
    • 9. Broadband Providers Available: The Gresham
    • 10. Digiweb- Satellite ProviderSatellite Business Extra10 Broadband 10mb download speed 2mb upload speed Available traffic 13mb ‘Always On’ broadband Ethernet connection €65.95 a month 2 year connection (1yr longer than other options)

    • 14. Best Choice for The Gresham Hotel Although both impress me, I would choose UPC as my provider. Why?  It has the best download and upload speeds  Although pricier, uses most advanced technology  Caters for multiple phone line usage  Great satellite and cable TV services available I believe that, although there is an installation fee and a dearer monthly bill, that the guests should get the highest speed of internet that works for the company. If cost effectiveness was a main factor, Eircom would be my choice.
    • 15. Reflection In future, I will not use Magnet as their website was not user-friendly & lacked in information. UPC would be well advised to have their business packages easier to find and understand. Digiweb are not as organized as other websites but I think they are underrated and have potential. Eircom, unlike UPC, do not provide TV services but have competitive prices and have a very user friendly website.
