What Is Wireless DSL?

What Is Wireless DSL?

I’m often asked the question, what is wireless DSL?  I’ll attempt to answer it with this article.

Put simply, wireless DSL is an Internet connection that you make using radio signals rather than traditional wires. The high speed/bandwidth is very comparable to traditional DSL as well as cable modem Internet access. Wireless DSL is a relatively new technology, although it is very robust. This technology makes use of airwaves to connect customers.  One advantage that wireless DSL has is that the Internet access is up to 8 times faster than other technologies such as the regular copper wire used by your local telephone company or the coaxial cable that your local cable provider employs.

Wireless DSL Explained

The principle of this technology is the same that has been used by radio stations all across the country for years.  A connection can originate any where in an entire state, but it can easily be heard by any one with a radio even if they’re miles away from the originating point of the signal.  The same holds true of your internet access.

What are the major benefits of wireless DSL?  There are three compelling reasons that make wireless DSL a great choice for internet access.

  • Wireless Internet access is up to 8 times faster than conventional DSL services and up to 20 times faster than cable Internet services.
  • Wireless Internet access is a point-to-point connectivity, which allows faster authentication on servers.
  • Wireless Internet is a new but proven technology, which allows the user to get more services than regular DSL or cable connections.

Basic installation in general costs around $350m but will vary according to specials. This fee includes the radio, antenna, router and mounting hardware. Please keep in mind that each installation is a bit different and quotes are provided for each site prior to installation. Thus prices may vary from case to case.

When you decide to try out wireless DSL, you will have to inform the providing company about it and it will be followed by a Site Survey by the technicians of the company. The technicians will assess the situation and then offer you various options based on your Internet needs.

How can I connect to wireless DSL?

You can access your wireless DSL connection via a wireless dsl modem.  Wireless DSL modems vary in price and quality, but ActionTec modems are popular and cost less than $75.

Four Symptoms to Look for Right Before a Heart Attack

Four Symptoms to Look for Right Before a Heart Attack

 Nearly 1,000,000 Americans suffer their first heart attack every year. Almost 500,000 suffer their second, sometimes third heart attack annually. Of these, 25% happen with no warning signs or obvious symptoms. They are called “Silent Killers”.

The scary thing is, even if there are symptoms, they can be so mild or seemingly unrelated, they don’t connect the two… unless they are made aware of what to look for.

Four signs have been identified as the most important in recognizing a silent heart attack.

These four things are the focus of a recent video presentation by renowned cardiovascular expert Dr. Chauncey Crandall: Silent Heart Attacks:. According to Dr. Crandall, the reason silent heart attacks go untreated is because people don’t even notice the symptoms, so he created a special video presentation to show the four things to look for that may be a silent warning — before it’s too late to intervene and survive the damage.

 

Timing is everything. It is the critical factor for survival. The longer time passes between the first symptomand receiving care, the more chance of disability or death.

Knowing what to look for is crucial, especially when people don’t relate those symptoms to a heart attack.

The video above, first created as an education tool quickly went viral and had over 5 million views in a few short months. Heart attacks are the #1 killer in America and when education is prevention in many cases, people need to know. People want to know.

This video shows real-life, preventable heart attacks, that ended in death. Scary, but eye opening.

Dr. Crandall, chief of the cardiac transplant program at Palm Beach Cardiovascular Clinic in Florida, practices on the front lines of interventional, vascular, and transplant cardiology. After years of experience, Dr. Crandall has been able to detect little-known warning signs and symptoms like the four he addresses.

“I think the real value in this presentation is the number of simple strategies he outlines to help prevent heart disease,” says Davis, “strategies that many doctors just don’t take the time to discuss with patients until they’re already showing obvious symptoms of cardiovascular stress.”

Almost every American has been touched by this disease, either directly or through a loved one. If watching this video can prevent another tragic story, another preventable “widow maker”, than it is our duty to not only watch and learn, but also to share and help educate.

You never know when or how a Heart Attack can affect your life.
