Internet Access

Internet access is increasingly considered a requirement in an apartment these days. Free wireless Internet apartment is a perk many landlords are offering or at the very least providing free Wi-Fi from the leasing office or other common areas within the apartment community.

Internet in the apartment can come through a variety of services, including wireless router, dial-up through phone lines, broadband Internet access like DSL, cable, and satellite. Each service has its advantages and the one you choose really depends on which one fits your equipment, budget and lifestyle.

A wireless Internet apartment connection can be achieved through a wireless router in conjunction with your cable service. This a good solution if there are roommates needing connections for multiple computers.

Dial-up through the phone line probably has the lowest price tag for Internet access, costing as little as $10 per month. However, dial-up service can be slow, especially at peak user times like evenings. If you stream videos or download music, you are likely to be frustrated by a dial-up connection.

A broadband DSL Internet connection sends digital signals through the phone line, but cable or satellite usually offer a faster service. It also cost more than twice what you would pay for a dial-up connection. Consider bundling your phone, television and Internet services together from one provider and you can save a significant amount of money.

Having Internet access is not a necessary utility, like electricity. But having access to the information and entertainment Internet access can provide enhances your apartment living experience. Be sure to shop around for the best rate on the Internet service that meets your specific needs.
