Hi, Michael Bremmer, and I'm here today to talk about the advantages and the disadvantages of using DSL, cable modem and dial-up internet. Let's talk about dial-up internet, that's what we all used back in 1995. The only advantage to it is that you can get it pretty much anywhere. The disadvantages of it is that it is really really slow and it also sounds horrible when it is connecting. Most people today are going to use a DSL or cable modem connection because they are fast, they are ubiquitous and they are fairly inexpensive. Most importantly with a cable modem or DSL connection, it can allow you to work at home with a quality high speed internet connection just as if you were in your office. So in conclusion, if it's at all possible, make sure you get DSL or cable modem.
