Dial-Up Service and Its Impact on Sales

 


Visitors: 310

Dial-up service is not the ideal internet service for an internet based business because it is generally very slow and make taking care of business transactions a burdensome process. There are also some convenience and cost issues associated with dial-up service that may be hindering to an internet business operator as well as some undesirable limitations.

Choosing an internet service provider and internet service is obviously one of the first steps to launching and running an internet based business. For your internet business to be productive as well as time and cost efficient, making the decision about your internet services deserves some thought and consideration.

There are several types of internet services. The very basic internet service is dial-up service. Other types of internet services include broadband or high-speed internet services. Sometimes choices are limited due to geographic locations and the availability of various types of internet service in your area.

If you are faced with a choice between dial-up service and high- speed internet service, the high-speed service is your best bet because it will improve the efficiency of your internet business, make processing of sales transactions easier and quicker, and it will be more convenient. Though high-speed internet services may be more expensive than dial-up service, they are certainly a more cost-effective solution for your internet business.

The most common internet connections included dial-up service and variations of dial-up service, digital subscriber line (DSL) service, cable modem service, wireless internet service, and satellite internet service.

There are also dedicated line services like T1 fiber and T3 lines that provide a higher level of internet service increasing speed, scalability, networking capabilities, and reliability. Dedicated fiber line options are generally pretty expensive and are usually recommended for large companies with vast computer networks or website hosting companies.

Dial-up service is available just about anywhere that there is phone service. Dial-up service uses a standard phone line and a computer modem to access the internet. Speed, functionality and service limitations are generally a problem with dial-up service making it an undesirable option for internet businesses.

Dial-up service usually has a maximum speed of 56k - very slow for an internet connection. Dial-up service is usually pretty inexpensive, but most internet service providers limit the number of hours that you can be consistently online with a dial-up service.

So, when you are in the midst of something, you may just lose your internet connection and be booted off. This can be very inconvenient, especially if you are in the process of communicating with a customer online.

Since dial-up service uses a phone line, it can be a burden if you only have one phone line because you won't be able to make or accept phone calls during the time that you are online.

This can be a very burdensome issue for an internet business if you need to access things online while talking on the phone with customers or with technical support representatives - it simply can't be done.

If you have no option but to use dial-up service, having a phone line for the dial-up service that is separate from your voice line is crucial.

Also, if you are limited to the use of dial-up service, check to see what dial-up service options are available to improve the speed and reliability of your dial-up service internet connection. Dial-up service modems come in different speeds with 56k being top of the line.

Lower level dial-up service modems will be even more inefficient. Accelerated dial-up service is an option to standard dial-up service if high-speed service is not a possibility.

Accelerated dial-up service also uses a telephone line and a modem, but through the use of compression software, it can increase the speed of dial-up service lessening the speed related burdens by making web pages load faster and enabling you to upload and download files more efficiently.
