What are the different types of internet connections(like Dialup, DSL etc) that are in use now?
Which is the fastest? How do the different types rank in terms of speed.
Also, which is most commonly used today??

Personally.
I think it has to do with the provider.
I have Comcast cable connection. I like it.
I also had Pacbell DSL YEARS ago and loved it. But now they are called SBC.
I dont know how good htey are now.
Remeber internet speed is mostly rated in bits
8 bits in a byte.

bit b 0 or 1
byte B 8 bits
kilobit kb 1000 bits
Kilobyte (binary) KB 1024 bytes
Kilobyte (decimal) KB 1000 bytes
Megabit Mb 1000 kilobits
Megabyte (binary) MB 1024 Kilobytes
Megabyte (decimal) MB 1000 Kilobytes

I don't know what the isp provider situation is like in Dubai but basically if you can get a cable connection that would be best. The most commonly used connection overall world wide would probably be dial up.
