My Cable/DSL Provider offers a Lite service, will HERMES work with this type of broadband connection?
Yes. Even though Lite, or entry level, broadband connections are slower than regular broadband service there is still enough speed to support a HERMES phone call without any sacrifice in quality. However it is important to note that many Lite broadband connections may only allow one device to connect to the internet at a time. In such cases you will need a router (~$60 CAD) to allow multiple devices to connect to a Lite connection. Routers also provide firewall protection to your network from hackers and many viruses. Shaw Lite is an example of a broadband connection which only allows one device to connect.
