What to Remember When Choosing Internet Service Provider At Local Area

This is a guest post by Andraea Campbell about the important points to consider before choosing an Internet Service Provider at your local area. When you search for a new internet service provider, there are a couple of things to remember. You will want an Internet package that gives you all of the services you need, while still being offered at an affordable price. Here are a couple of things to remember when you select your new ISP:

1. Fiber Internet is Growing in Popularity

While most residential Internet connections are either of the cable or DSL types, fiber Internet is rapidly gaining in popularity due to increased availability in various regions. Fiber Internet uses fiber-optic cables to transmit data, which are faster than the standard copper cables used for DSL. This allows you to get much higher speeds, going up to 175Mbps for download.

2. You May Need to Buy or Rent the Equipment

Unless you already have a modem that is compatible with your Internet provider, you will need to buy or rent one. Renting a modem isn't too expensive and usually costs just a few dollars a month. A new one is usually under $100. Some providers will include the cost of modem rental in your Internet price or may give you one for free if you sign a contract for 2 or 3 years.

3. Save Money by Getting More Services from the Same Company

If you're also looking for a home phone service, like the one offered at http://www.bell.ca/Home Phone, you will see that some companies offer a lot more than just Internet services. They may offer TV, home phone and mobile phone services as well. If you take several services in a bundle, you will usually end up paying much less than if you had taken each of them separately from different providers.

4. Watch for Monthly Data Transfer Limits

Some ISPs will limit the amount of data transfer that is included in their plans. This limit can vary anywhere between 5 and 500 GB per month. Should you exceed this limit, your Internet access will usually not be cut off, but you will be billed extra for the data transfer that exceeds the limits of your plan. If you plan on downloading large files, or you watch a lot of online video, you will want a plan that includes a bigger amount of monthly data transfer to avoid incurring these additional charges. The good news is that many providers now let you choose an option that gives you unlimited data transfer for just a few extra dollars each month.

Why A Course on Editing is a Good Start for Wannabe Writers

If you’ve been thinking about becoming a writer for some time but you don’t know where to begin, taking a course from industry professionals can be a big help to get you started. If you can study another person’s writing that you know is a good writer, then you can learn to become like them. One of the things that every good writer knows is that you need to be able to edit properly in order to succeed. There are many reasons why editing is so important to a writer, but in order to hone your skills as a writer, you also need to hone your skills as an editor too.
Boost your credibility When most people try to edit a piece of writing, the first thing they do is proofread the work to make sure there are no obvious spelling and grammar issues. This is extremely important because the reader needs to be able to trust that you know what you are writing about. If you can’t master basic spelling and grammar, then the reader won’t be able to trust that you know anything about what you’re writi…

Building Blocks for Virtual Businesses : Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world

This is a guest post by Ripley Daniels about "Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world.

Whenever I tell friends I had a tough day at the office, they laugh at me. That's because they know I don't really have an office. I work very hard but I work for a company that is completely remote. Only a few of my co-workers ever go into an office at all and when they do, it's only for short periods of time. Our "office" is a virtual one. To us, the traditional office workplace is a thing of the past, alongside Tyrannosaurus Rex, the slide rule, and telephones where you stick your finger in a hole and turn a dial.
Unfortunately, none of this prevents me from having tough days. I still have them. But the reasons have nothing to do with the fact that my co-workers and I don't have a brick and mortar edifice that we can use to plan, strategize, hold our meetings, make presentations, discuss sensitive business topics, build relatio…
