For people using dial-up Internet service, the switch to high-speed broadband service can be an intimidating prospect. WhiteFence.com, the nation's leading online comparison shopping marketplace for essential home services, can help consumers answer all these questions and navigate their way to the right high-speed Internet solution for their home.
The majority of websites are designed to be experienced with a broadband connection. Keeping up with the latest news, downloading new music, researching a school project, or watching TV programs online is far more daunting with a dial-up connection. In addition, a high-speed connection has the added convenience of always being on without interrupting phone service. With high speed there is no dialing and waiting for the service to connect or dealing with frustrating disconnections and busy signals that are common when connected through a dial-up service.
Thanks to healthy competition and technological advances, it is now more affordable than ever to have high-speed Internet service. Standard DSL service can cost less than $20 a month, which is about the same as "enhanced" dial-up services, but with additional features like antivirus security software, multiple e-mail accounts, personal Web space and more.
For households with that don't have home phone, there is cable Internet service as well as a stand-alone DSL option that does not require a landline, giving several options to upgrade and save on monthly Internet expenses. A bundled package from a high-speed Internet provider that includes other home services like cable and home phone is another effective way to lower monthly bills, with companies offering additional incentives and special pricing for ordering multiple services.
Upgrading from dial-up Internet service doesn't have to be unnecessarily complicated. WhiteFence.com takes the guess work out of finding the right high-speed service and making the switch. In just a few clicks, consumers can compare prices and packages from available DSL, cable, and satellite high-speed Internet providers to find the right combination of features and price that works best for them.
