Dedicated Internet Service refers to a type of Internet connection that provides exclusive, non-shared access to a specific bandwidth for a single user or organization.

This contrasts with shared internet services, where multiple users or businesses share the same bandwidth, leading to potential fluctuations in performance.

Is this the same as Shared Services?

Shared internet services, such as broadband or cable, involve multiple users sharing the same network infrastructure, leading to potential congestion and performance variations. In contrast, dedicated internet services guarantee a specified amount of bandwidth exclusively for the subscribed user, eliminating the impact of neighboring users on performance.
