Dedicated Internet Connection

Dedicated line connectivity tends to be the most cost effective method for small to large groups of users. However, it is also the most expensive means to be connected to the Internet. Dedicated line connections are usually connections that are permantly connected. Sometimes these connections can temporarily be disconnected, but for the most part the lines are active regardless if it is in use or not.

Dedicated line connectivity establishes an Internet connection through one computer, typically referred to as the gateway machine. Other users either connect to this machine to connect to the Internet, or the gateway machine is apart of a network (or LAN).
