Connecting to the Internet


If you wanted to fill up your bathtub in a hurry, you'd turn the faucet on full blast. Now, if the pipe that connected the water supply to your faucet were the size of a drinking straw, turning it on full blast wouldn't be much help; you'd still get just a trickle. A dial-up Internet connection is like having a straw connecting the Internet to your computer. A broadband connection, on the other hand, is like a big fat pipe that allows for download rates that are at least 20 times faster. Most video files will start to play while they are downloading. That means you can start watching a video almost instantlyif you have broadband.

Without a high-speed connection, watching and publishing videoblogs is an exercise in frustration. Luckily, broadband is more affordable these days, especially in urban areas. So do yourself a favor and take the broadband plunge if you haven't done so already.
