Meaning of DIAL-UP ACCESS in English

DIAL-UP ACCESS

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 dial-up access was 28.8 Kbps (28,800 bits per second), but new technologies such as ISDN are providing faster rates.
