    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??

    lol JayT

    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.
