Broadband Basics
What are high-speed, broadband, Cable, DSL, and Satellite?
A: "High-speed" and "Broadband" are interchangeable terms that refer to the power of the Internet connection you are making. As the names imply, large amounts of data can be transferred between your computer and the Internet, and thus DSL, Cable, T1 and Satellite Internet service all are considered "High-speed" or "Broadband" connections.

"Cable" or "Cable Modem" describes Internet service usually provided by a cable company. The Internet connection is actually provided on the same type of cable that you plug into the back of your television. Cable Internet service provides download speeds up to 50 times faster than a typical dial-up connection (usually 56K), but may be slower if too many users in your area are connected at one time.

"DSL" stands for Digital Subscriber Line, and is a term used for a high-speed connection that is provided over your telephone wires. Although the signal comes through the phone wires, you can still make telephone calls while you are connected to the Internet. DSL Internet service provides download speeds up to 50 times faster than a typical dial-up connection, but may be slower depending on which service you select and on how far your home is from the telephone company.

"Satellite" refers to one-way high-speed Internet technology that uses satellites orbiting the Earth to transmit data downstream through a satellite dish attached to the roof of your home that is wired to your computer. Although downloads (data your computer receives) can be up to 10 times faster than a dial-up modem, uploads (sending data from your computer) is significantly slower because the data must travel over phone lines using a dial-up modem. Designed with the rural and semi-rural market in mind, Satellite is a great option for those who can't get DSL or cable and still want quality high-speed Internet access.

Q: What are the maximum speeds of each type of broadband service?
A: Although the speed depends greatly on a number of factors, here are some estimates for download speeds:
Cable Internet service is up to 50 times faster than a typical dial-up connection
DSL Internet service is up to 50 times faster than a typical dial-up connection
Satellite Internet Service is up to 10 times faster than a typical dial-up modem

Q: What is the difference between "download" and "upload" when referring to broadband speed?
A: Downloading and uploading both involve transferring data. The difference between the two is best defined as the direction in which data travels. When you are downloading data that means the information is being pulled from the Internet to your computer. When uploading, information is going from your computer to the Internet. Here are a few examples:
Downloads: Receiving E-mail, Web surfing, playing music and videos
Uploads: Sending e-mail attachments, posting your Web site to a server

Q: When referring to speed, what do 500K and 1.5M mean?
A: This is the speed that your connection delivers information from the Internet to your computer. The letter K is an abbreviation for kilobyte and is approximately equal to 1,000 bytes per second. The letter M is an abbreviation for megabyte and is approximately equal to 1,000,000 bytes per second.

Q: What hardware and/or software are needed to get high-speed?
A: Depending on which type of Internet connection you select, system requirements vary. To review the system requirements, select the checkbox of each plan you are considering and click the Compare button. Review all of the text in the "Computer Requirements" row on the Internet Plan Detail page.

To check which Operating System you have installed, your system memory and your computer's processor speed:
Right-click on the My Computer icon on your Desktop and select Properties.
Under System, you will see which version of Windows you have installed.
Under Computer, look for the type of processor that you have installed and the amount or RAM memory you have.

Check the amount of free hard drive space:
Double-click the My Computer icon on your Desktop.
Double-click the My Computer folder
Right-click C: drive and select Properties
"Free space" describes the number of megabytes available on that drive.

Q: Can I use my current modem to receive high-speed Internet service?
A: Regardless of whether you select Cable, DSL or Satellite Internet service, you will need a new modem. This is because the signals coming in from your cable company, DSL line or Satellite dish use different wiring and transmit data in a different way than your current dial-up modem.

Q: If I have high-speed access at home, how do I access the Internet when I travel for work or pleasure?
A: Many of the Internet Service Providers provide limited dial-up access services for you to use when you travel. To ensure that you choose a service plan that includes this feature, select the checkbox of each plan you are considering and click the Compare button. Make sure the "Additional Dial-up Account Included" column says "yes" before you select the plan.
A stable broadband internet connection is necessary when applying online for a scholarship through the Matthew Neuenhaus Foundation. Broadband is probably used by a majority nonprofits like the Matthew Neuenhaus Foundation as well.

ball Windows Optimizing, Tweaks and More Software Downloads:  download Download
ball This is a registry patch that helps speed up your download by adjusting the Default RCV Window and other settings in the registry. This is designed for Cable modems but should also work fine with DSL. You can download the Cable / DSL patch HERE. Use Ispeed to test the throughput speed before and after applying the registry patch and possibly increase your throughput from about 53,000 bytes/sec. to 160,000 bytes/sec. This is a 3x performance increase and all systems are different, so your speed increase may vary.

ball Patch Windows 2k/XP not to cache failed DNS entries. download Download
By default, when a DNS lookup fails (due to temporary DNS problems), Windows still caches the unsuccessful DNS query, and in turn fails to connect to a host regardless of the fact that the DNS server might be able to handle your lookup seconds later.

ball The following patch increases Web page loading speed, by doubling the number of possible concurrent open connections. For example, imagine a web page has 20 images and some text - in order for your browser to get all these files, it opens 2 or 4 concurrent connections, depending on the Web server. Increasing the number of open connections allows for faster retrieving of the data. Please note that the patch sets some values outside of the HTML specs. If you decide to install it, backup your Registry first. Changes will take effect after you reboot. Download the patch appropriate for your OS:
