The line of communication between your computer (or any other device) and the Internet. A commonly heard question is, "What speed is your connection?" To this, you answer "ISDN" or "DSL" or whatever it may be. If you're using a dial-up connection, though, you'd answer with the speed of your modem, as in, "28.8 dude."
