Get internet connected

By Staff Writer
Many people in South Africa connect to the internet at work. Connecting at work can lead to problems, with sites being blocked and the opprobrium of your boss catching you facebooking, again. The solution lies in getting a home internet connection where you can surf what you want when you want it, without causing any trouble. There are a lot of providers out there and it is a complicated purchase, so what can you do to simplify the process?

 

  • Choose your line speed
  • Choose your bandwidth
  • Select your bandwidth type

 

The higher the line speed that you have the quicker the data can get to your computer. The faster this is the better surfing experience you can have. Low line speeds can lead to graphics loading slowly and videos being almost impossible to watch. If you like to watch videos or like to look at sites with plenty of pictures, like Facebook, you will need to buy more data which comes packaged from 1 gigabyte to 30, but choose wisely and consider how you want to use your home internet connection.

You can also chose between shaped and unshaped data packages. Shaped service prioritises the activities that you do while sitting in front of your PC, for example surfing your favourite sites or doing your online banking. Unshaped does not prioritise your activities. What it all comes down to is choosing what will work best for your surfing patterns. A good internet connection filter will be able to guide you through these choices and get you connected to the internet today.
