Before hiring internet we must ask ourselves what type of connection we want, the speed we need, service coverage and our budget.
Ways to hire internet
To hire internet it is advisable to visit the website of the company that we have chosen. Many operators have special offers if we hired internet online. This recruitment is done through a form, in which we insert our data. After submitting this form, the operator will contact us to set the details of the service.
It is possible that before submitting our application, we have to check coverage. In the same website operator usually we can normally, by entering our zip code, to know this information. Depending on our coverage or not we can access some or all operator services.
Alternatively, we can call the telephone service to hire internet by phone. It is the best option if we need detailed explanations of the service contract or do not have an internet connection. In the telephone service we will be able to find out about the speeds that we can enjoy according to the zone of coverage in which we are.
Choosing an ISP
The Internet Service Providers (ISPs) connect to the consumer internet. There are several types of ISP. In order to select the best provider of internet, you must know that technology is available in our area, which technology is right for our needs, how much speed we need, and the service cost.
What technology is available in my area?
Most ISPs use either an existing phone line (for dial-up or DSL) or a cable TV line. In some areas there are also fiber optic connections, the fastest on the market. Depending on the area, some connections may not be available.
How much speed do I need?
As a rule, faster speed, higher cost of the line.
In the majority of cases, an ADSL line, with speeds between 4Mb to 20Mb, offers a broadband connection sufficient for all the needs of a normal user. If we want to watch TV or play online, we may need higher connection speeds. If we consult our coverage, we can know what speeds and services are available in our area.
