How do I connect to the internet?
You can connect to the Internet in two ways: either by connecting your modem’s PSU (with the modem’s network cable attached) directly into the Ethernet port on your computer or else you can connect wirelessly by connecting to the WiFi router in your home.

What is the contention ration?
The contention ratio is the ratio of the potential maximum demand to the actual bandwidth. The higher the contention ratio, the greater the number of users that may be trying to use the actual bandwidth at any one time and, therefore, the lower the effective bandwidth offered, especially at peak times.
Why is the upload speed important?
Put plainly, upload speeds represent the amount of data you can send in a given second. This has an obvious impact on tasks such as sending email. But upload bandwidth also consumed with each item seen on a Web page. To download a Web page or the individual elements, the computer must first send a request to download. Many modern applications place a greater demand on upload bandwidth than in the past. Online, real-time games, such as Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games require constant two-way communication to update your computer on what’s happening in the game world and to tell others what you’re doing within the game world. Voice over IP also demands as much as 64Kbps of upload and download bandwidth during a call or stuttering will occur.

What can I do with cloud services?
Data services are usually used for any of the following; infrastructure, platform, software or storage. A common cloud service, infrastructure, denotes to the offering of data storage disks and virtual servers.
What types of cloud services are there available in cloud computing?
Based on its location, the cloud can be classified as public, private, hybrid or community cloud. Public clouds are shared infrastructures which anyone can tap into, usually managed via a self-service portal, while the infrastructure is located on the premises of the cloud provider. On the other hand, a private cloud is, as expected, privately owned and managed with access limited to the business’ own enterprise or section of value chain. A hybrid cloud means using both private and public clouds depending on their purpose. For instance, you may want a public cloud to interact with customers yet use a private cloud for the storage of data. Lastly, a community cloud is an infrastructure shared between organisations.
What types of applications can run on cloud?
Any application can be put on the Cloud, however, you do need to take into account any regulatory and compliance concerns most especially when it comes to sensitive customer data.
