There are three types of internet access method; some are for mobile phones while others are for both mobile phone and the computers. So, in this article are the top 3 types of internet connections and their usefulness.
A WAP internet connection is another form of internet access that can be liken to the GPRS internet access because it shares the same traits with the connection except the fact that a GPRS connection can be useful when it comes to using it to connect to the internet with a computer. This is totally mobile internet method which means that you can only use it on your mobile phone and you can’t use it with a computer.
The connection is very slow when compared to the other two forms of internet access mentioned in this article. Only mobile browser enabled phones can use this connection. Connection can be activated by using the phone line to dial a connection via the phone connection’ signal before the user can then be able to access the net. It is classified among the second generation internet connection method.
The GPRS internet connection method is known as a type of an internet connection that which you can use to connect to the internet via your mobile phone network.

The connection is fast in speed but very low when compared to the speed you can get from a broadband internet connection (third generation internet access).
GPRS internet connection can work for both PC and a computer system. Just like I said above, you will need to dial the connection from your mobile phone in order to connect to the internet with this type of connection and in most cases, people use PC suites or Bluetooth to setup a connection link between the phone and the computer in order to access the internet.
It is a type of connection that can disconnect at any point in time without notice if there’s no more signal in the area but a broadband internet connection can’t.
New Generations Connections (3G and 4G)
Newer generation internet connection methods are known as the most reliable and fastest mode of accessing the internet. When we are talking of newer generations of internet connection, we are referring to 3G and 4G broadband internet connection methods.
A 3G broadband internet connection is known as the fastest internet connection until the time 4G internet connection method was announced to be in the making and when it finally released for everybody to be using it worldwide, it will become the most fastest internet connection with the speed which is said to be in form of 100mbps which none of the formal internet connection were able to offer.
