Broadband is a high-speed way of connecting to the internet.
It is at least 10 times faster than so-called dial-up net services that use a modem and standard telephone line.
Broadband can be accessed via the phone line (known as Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line or ADSL) or by cable, wireless or satellite.
The two big advantages of broadband over dial-up are that it frees up the telephone line for voice calls and can be left on permanently.
It still requires a modem, which is paid for when you sign up. Read more Broadband Guide
