Internet speed question
This is my second post in this forum, and even though it may appear to be another dumb question, I hope that folks will ignore my apparent ignorance and help with the answer anyway.
I currently use AOL dial-up (I know, I'm way behind the times), and I'm considering high speed DSL from BellSouth. They offer their highspeed ULTRA for $32.95, and they claim that it's 30 times the speed of dial-up. Here's my question.
Is there any possibility that with high speed download versus dial-up, that one can lose data in a download? I know that this seems to be a silly question, but it just occurred to me that maybe when data is downloaded at high speed, bits or packets could be lost.
