A lot of websites are now interactive and have lots of media contained within them. These websites, which have sound and graphic elements, use a lot of bandwidth and technology like broadband has been invented so that they can be accessed easily. Websites like these may be particularly appealing to your children and therefore you will want good broadband access so that they are easily able to access them.
The popular social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter are also best accessed via broadband.
If you have high-speed broadband connection then you can link up to other computers in your household and share the connection. This could not be achieved when dial-up was around. Many other household devices now take advantage of broadband connections. For example your child may own a games console such as an Xbox or Nintendo Wii which can also use broadband to enhance game play by connecting with gamers in other locations.
One of the biggest advantages the Internet can bring your children is educational material. This material is easily accessible and provided by a range of hosts including the BBC and the Open University. No matter how old your child is, there is sure to be something that they can find useful and educate themselves with.
