What is a broadband connection?

A broadband connection is a high-speed Internet connection which allows for a faster transmission of data than a dial-up connection. Cable and DSL connections are usually considered Broadband. Due to the extensive customization and amount of new learning content in JumpStart World, we require a broadband connection for downloading new content in the game.

Why do I need a broadband/DSL connection?

JumpStart World is a customizable product that was designed to last several months. As such, we download large files to your computer at different times. A broadband or high speed connection like a cable modem or DSL is required to make the download as quick as possible. We are committed to the safety and protection of your child and while an internet connection is required, at no time will your child ever be online.
