Introduction

Research on Different Types of Broadbands (Report) This is a FULL investigation about broadbands, the reason for investigating this, is because I will need to write up a report based on what I have found. Selina Davison is the Managing Director for "FishTank", a company of web-designers. I will make extensive research on: * What is broadband? * Does it cost less? * Are there broadbands for all kinds of businesses, whether they are small, medium or large? * Is it easy to get access? * Does installation cost a lot of money? * What features does broadband give you? * Does having broadband make it easier to use? * How much does it cost per month? And many more The broadband I will be looking through are: * BTOpenworld * Tiscali * Aol * Freeserve * Telewest (Blueyonder) BTOpenworld BTOpenworld is probably the best broadband there is, there are so many options for home owners, businesses whether they are small, medium or large. This gives a variety of discounts and special offers you will find. I think that this could be more ideal for 'FishTank'. I have printed some examples that I think may help the managing director of 'FishTank'. The benefits of connecting with BTOpenworld are: * Ten additional emails * Ten times faster * Free installation * More features are added * Pay up to �27.99+ per month * A high speed internet connection with business broadband means you ...read more.

To log on you simply open your web browser and the PC will connect in the background - similarly, if you open your email application you will connect to the Internet automatically and stay connected until you shut the computer down. Cost - Tiscali Broadband is charged at a flat monthly fee no matter how long you stay online or how much you download. Broadband enables both telephone calls and your permanent Internet connection to operate on the same phone line simultaneously. This means that there is no longer any need for any users to have two lines - one for Internet and one for voice and fax calls. This is achieved by plugging a filter into all phone sockets that are to be used allowing voice and Internet at the same time. AOL AOL is suitable for home owners and suitable for a family. This is where they are able to get a lot more features that are suitable for young people, like more music downloads, homework help, film trailers and reviews and many more. AOL Broadband gives you all the speed and convenience of broadband and many more. This includes all standards phone lines and no need for a second line. * View exclusive contents and download files up to 10x faster * Enjoy high quality trailers and music at the click of a button * Use your existing phone line while your online You can apply getting AOL broadband online or telephone them by asking that you want AOL broadband. ...read more.

Conclusion

* Connection-only pack (Free): Freeserve activates your broadband connection and lets you buy whatever broadband modem you want. This option is now available online and from selected branches of Dixons, Currys, The Link and PC World. Both options will then cost you just �27.99 per month for the ongoing connection charges. Can I still use my phone line while I'm connected to the Internet with Freeserve? * Yes, you can make calls, fax or even dial the Internet (i.e., an ordinary dial-up Internet connection with another computer) whilst online with Freeserve Broadband. You will receive a bill from your current phone operator for phone calls as normal. This is also a really good broadband to have and will also consider this one for 'FishTank'. Telewest Broadband (Blueyonder) Telewest (Blueyonder) is a broadband I am not familiar with, I have heard of it but not many people use this type of broadband. Telewest Broadband Eurobell offers effective communications solutions and savings at home and for your business. * Telewest Communications plc, the UK's second largest cable operator, but is a local company too and pride themselves on being friendly and approachable to work with. * Whatever your business and whatever its size, Telewest business advisors can bring you the power and productivity of broadband digital communications. * With high-speed voice, data and Internet, Telewest 4 billion pound national network can help you create new opportunities for your business and revolutionise the way you communicate.
