The Internet, and more so the broadband Internet, have revolutionized the way we live and work as never before. It has opened up undreamt of possibilities; its potential for more new possibilities is growing at unprecedented speed. You could never have imagined that a cardiovascular surgery could be conducted under live video supervision and guidance of a surgeon sitting in a far off place. Or, in the foreign exchange capital market, transaction of sale and purchase of important currencies worth billions and trillions of dollars daily could take place in a matter of seconds. Such examples can be multiplied to no end. All this has become possible with the advent of broadband Internet.
Broadband Internet is like a wide highway that allows for speedy and smooth traffic for thousands of vehicles running in many directions round the clock. Broadband internet has been facilitated by satellite transmission of data. This kind of transmission allows many modes of communication. You can transfer your data containing lengthy files of texts, photographs, music, video, audio, graphics and different kinds of pictures. You can also make instant financial transactions, or just exchange pleasantries. Broadband facilitates all this through encryption and decryption techniques, which secure your privacy.
Compare broadband Internet and dialup modem connections and you will quickly see how slow the dialup paradigm is. Imagine uploading a long e-book or a Photoshop file with a dialup modem connection. It takes ages, as it were. An ordinary music file that can be transferred in seconds through broadband Internet takes many minutes via a dialup modem connection. Broadband Internet enables you to transfer your data 10 to 20 times faster. Through broadband Internet the data can be transferred in the speed range of 256Kb/sec to 10Kb/sec. The transmission takes place instantaneously at the click of the mouse.
As if that wasn’t enough, the speed at which new technologies are being inducted into the field of broadband Internet will make it more useful than ever before.
