How to Get Fast Internet Speed

By Robert Lee

You have lots of options for getting fast Internet access, including options for mobile phones, PDAs, laptops and home computers. High-speed, digital Internet access could make your connection 100 times faster than analog access using a home dial-up connection, according to California State University at Fullerton.

Step 1

Order a high-speed DSL connection. DSL, which stands for Digital Subscriber Line, offers fast Internet speeds over land telephone lines. Contact your phone company to order.

Step 2

Order high-speed broadband Internet service through your local cable television provider. The cable companies offer fast Internet service as part of a bundle with other services, or it can be purchased as a stand-alone product.

Step 3

Order high-speed Internet access delivered by satellite. Some companies offering satellite services also offer high-speed Internet using the same technology. Check with your favorite satellite television company to order.

Step 4

Connect to a high-speed Internet connection, such as WiFi, using your laptop or desktop. Your laptop must be capable of connecting to WiFi, and you will need access to a free or paid WiFi signal. Examples include free access at libraries and some coffee shops or bookstores.

Step 5

Subscribe to mobile broadband services. Contact a cell phone provider to order the service and a USB modem that will plug into your laptop. Once activated, the device will allow you to receive fast Internet access from your computer.

Step 6

Use your telephone, PDA or similar device to tap into free or paid high-speed Internet access via WiFi.
