What is Broadband?

A modern 'broadband' communications link can provide fast, 'always on' access to an increasing range of online services - internet, worldwide radio and TV, interactive games, music and software downloads.

It has even been claimed that "having a broadband connection can definitely increase the potential of your home in the eyes of buyers. Buyers should check out whether the area has broadband access. Even if they don’t want it now, it may become invaluable in later years and could be a factor in selling the property." - Simon Fairclough, head of marketing for Edinburgh Solicitors Property Centre (ESPC)

Most broadband packages come at a fixed price, starting at about £15 a month, regardless of the time spent online. With broadband it is possible to use the phone and an online service at the same time.
