Chapter 19. Connecting to the Internet > Different Types of Connections

Different Types of Connections

The first step in going online is establishing a connection between your computer and the Internet. To do this, you have to sign up with an Internet service provider (ISP), which, as the name implies, provides your home with a connection to the Internet.

Depending on what's available in your area, you can choose from two primary types of connections—dial-up or broadband. Dial-up is slower than broadband, but it's also lower priced. If you do a lot of web surfing, it's probably worth a few extra dollars a month to get the faster broadband connection.
