As many of the technology advancements are undertaken in the mobile world, accessing internet becomes easier. For the internet accessing process, two types of technologies are used. They are wired and wireless. Wired technology is the first developed one for internet connection. Because of its more reliability, still it is functioning successfully. Next, from wired the technology a step is moved ahead to wireless. This technology has rapidly developed because of its easy access at anywhere in the world. Let see the comparisons of both technologies to rectify the confusion of selecting the appropriate one for internet connection. The age of the wired technology has crossed more than billon years. In this wired technology, the electronic signals are transmitted from one place to another through cables like optical fibers, twisted pair cables, and so on. As compared with all the cables, optical fibers have more benefits than others. This wired technology paved way for multiplexing and SONET introduction. As compared with wireless, the cost of the connection is at affordable rates. The cost of wireless connection is more due to fixing the Wi-Fi antenna in appropriate places. The wired internet service is reliable. Because, these are never interfered by other microwave signals which is occurred in wireless. Hence, wireless in unreliable. The cost of maintenance for wired is low and hence it has more life time. The speed of the internet access is high. Because, once it is connected, there is no signal interference problem to interrupt which is facing probably in wireless technology. The quality of service (QoS) is more efficient in wired technology. As the transmission process is continuous without any distractions, wired has high efficient QoS service. Hence, due to reliability and less cost, wired technology is effective for internet access.
