A high-speed communications system in the home that links computers to the Internet. It uses a cable, DSL or satellite modem hooked up to an Internet service provider (ISP). A home broadband network also implies a fast internal network around the house that connects all the computers together. The home network uses wired Ethernet and wireless Wi-Fi technologies, which are both considerably faster than the broadband speeds of most Internet connections. See broadband, Ethernet and Wi-Fi.
