In order for a service to be defined as “broadband” it must be “always on” as opposed to the traditional dial-up connection which required users to log-on via a phone modem in order to establish online access. Depending on your location you may have multiple broadband services in your area. Some of the different types of broadband include DSL (Digital Subscriber Lines), Cable, Satellite, Fiber, Wifi (Wireless) and even BPL (Broadband Over Powerlines).
