Speed up the initial connection process
In general dialup connections
are considered as slow and time consuming. However, at the
same time that is the mode of access that is used by most
of the internet uses in UK. While surfing the Internet via
a dial up connection, you may often get time to grab a cup
of coffee or go to bathroom while web page is loading.
If so, chances are your dial
up connection actually getting slower…
Technically, the connection speed of a dial up connection
is limited by the bandwidth of phone lines. At the same time,
the average file size for Web content is getting larger and
larger. More and more web sites are using high end graphics
using flash or Dreamweaver. The result is that these pages
take a long time to load via your dial up connection. Some
time the wait is really annoying. Isn’t it?
Today, people are going for broadband connections that can
handle a bigger load as it takes a lot time to squeeze all
of that data through a dial-up connection. But the broadband
connections are not economically very viable for most users.
Also, the broadband connections are limited in terms of reach.
So, they still keep using dial up connection.
New technology offers a solution to the slow down of the
dial up connection that doesn't necessitate broadband. Services
are available in UK that offers high
speed dialup connections. If you take right steps to manage
your dialup connection
then you can get connection speeds that are 2 to 3 times faster
than usual dial up service.
When you think of dial-up Internet service, the first thing
that probably comes to mind is the ticking or screeching or
hissing sound that the modem makes as it connects. This music
is indication of the handshake protocol going between your
terminal and access terminal. This is the first strew slows
down the connection speed of dial-up Internet.
The handshake protocol begins the connection. The server at
the other end validates your connection and lets you access
to internet. It then allows data to be sent and receive to
and from your computer using the Internet. There are actually
two separate steps that occur in this process. The first half
is the modem initializing the Internet connection. The second
part is the dial up software taking over to regulate the dial
up connection. The process involves authenticating the user's
access to the ISP (Internet Service Provider) is done by the
When your computer modem is ticking, it is introducing itself
to your ISP. High speed dial up providers can not do anything
about the modem initialization. But they do speed up the software
validation part. This shorter validation time results in much
faster connection times. But in some cases it can reduce the
connection time by 33%. The increase in speed depends on the
PC and the access number. Using this high speed internet connection,
the 60 seconds "normal" dial up service connection
becomes maybe a 40 second process. This also affects the latter
part called data transfer. The data transfer is the process
in which web pages are loaded on your internet browser and
also involves the data that your machine sends on the internet.
The data transfer also boosts up with the faster connection.
Overall, high speed dialup
service allows your machine to establish a connection with
your ISP in a shorter time
then it takes with standard dial up connection. So, subscribe
for a service that gives you faster connection to the internet.
