|Most people look
at the bottom line cost of broadband Internet when deciding the
cost versus the benefits of Internet service. It's time to take
a closer look. A good place to start is VoIP, also known as
broadband phone service. The reasoning behind this being, the
lower phone rates offset the increased of cost Internet service,
essentially paying for the rise in cost in Internet access.
The cost effective possibilities are endless. Downloading movies instead of
going to the video store also puts your broadband connection to
work, (the legal way of course). You'll save gas, time, and it
is usually just cheaper.
It has been rumored, Microsoft, in partnership with Time Warner Cable, is
working on an Internet TV service called IP TV, and is due to
launch in 2006. With computers having the capability of using an
LCD TV screen as a monitor, or stream media to the TV, one can
imagine the financial benefits of this technology, but only if
you have broadband.
The examples listed are likely the most common ways to save a buck or two
with broadband. Internet telephone and Internet TV are just a
couple examples of new technology for broadband to come. by now
it should be fairly clear to most people that faster surfing and
downloads are only the very basic of benefits to broadband
Most dial up users won't switch to high speed Internet because they believe
it's too expensive. Sure the basic subscription is more, but
there are literally hundreds of ways to offset the higher cost
of broadband Internet service.
In most cases, the benefits of high speed Internet far outweigh the cost. In
closing, let me just say the next time you are looking for
somewhere to go or something to do with your broadband
connection, try looking for ways to put it to work for you, and
save some money.
