Correct Answer - Option 2 : Dial-up

The correct answer is Dial-up.

  • Dial-up:
    • A dial-up connection is the access method that uses telephone lines to connect to the Internet.
    • It is the most common way for individuals who use home computers to connect to the Internet. Hence, Option 2 is correct.
    • Dial-up internet access, usually just called Dial-up, is a slow way of connecting to the Internet by using a telephone line.
    • A modem is connected between a computer and a telephone line and then the modem is instructed to dial the phone number of an Internet service provider (ISP) to connect to the Internet.
    • The ISP must be a dial-up service provider with several dial-up modems waiting to accept dial-up calls.
    • This kind of internet is slower than DSL.
    • It is not widely used in the United States, where only one out of every ten people still uses it. In most parts of the world, dial-up has been replaced by broadband.
