How broadband Internet works – and why you need it

This blog explains the technology that powers broadband Internet, and how it helps to have it at your home or office.

For most of us, our home and work lives are simplified by the use of the Internet across a variety of devices. From something as basic as paying a utility bill or watching a live cricket match on your phone, to booking your annual holiday to filing your tax returns, the Internet facilitates a variety of functionalities that make life much easier.

In terms of office or home use, the Internet can do everything – from powering the use of the TV set (if you have a smart TV, you can just plug in your Internet TV device, for example) or run your desktop computer for work. Most people are taking broadband Internet connections for the home and office – and this is a smart choice, given the various benefits that it offers.

Why use a broadband Internet connection?

So what really, is a broadband connection? Let’s put it this way: it is an Internet connection that uses a wide spectrum landline but where you don’t need to cut an ongoing telephone call to connect to the Internet. In contrast, you have to terminate the ongoing phone call to connect to the worldwide web – this is because it is a narrow band connection that cannot handle both functions at the same time. A broadband Internet connection, by virtue of having a wider spectrum, can perform both these tasks simultaneously. Besides, it can help you connect many devices at the same time, without losing any data transmission speeds or network coverage.

Broadband Internet connections also offer faster speeds than regular dial-up connections. This helps you stay connected all the time, and also upload and download data rapidly without time loss.

Every mobile service provider today offers broadband connections for the home or office. But only leading ones like Airtel have the best broadband plans to offer across major cities in the country.

Airtel broadband – faster, better, superior

Instead of trawling through endless broadband plans across different service providers, just log on to the Airtel website or myAirtel app on your phone. Once there, you can check their current broadband Internet plans for your city of residence. With an Airtel broadband Internet connection, you get –

  • Amazingly fast speeds. An Ookla test for data speeds shows that Airtel broadband has speeds of 100 Mbps or higher at any given point in time.
