Definitions for "Dial-up Access"
Keywords:  modem, telephone, isp, isdn, fastish
Refers to connecting a device to a network via a modem and a public telephone network. Dial-up access is really just like a phone connection, except that the parties at the two ends are computer devices rather than people. Because dial-up access uses normal telephone lines, the quality of the connection is not always good and data rates are limited. In the past, the maximum data rate with dialup access was 56 Kbps (56,000 bits per second), but new technologies such as ISDN are providing faster rates.
Refers to using a modem and a telephone line to connect a computer to a network.
The connection of a computer to a network through the use of a modem and a public telephone network.
