"High Speed Internet" is the blanket description given to forms of Internet connectivity that replaced the old dial-up method of accessing the Internet.
The old dial-up methods were extremely limited in speed. For the average home user, dial-up speeds topped out at 56kbps.
That method of reaching the Internet has gradually been replaced by much faster methods: cable, DSL, satellite and even cellular. The speeds on these networks are MUCH greater than that of the old dial-up service. A SLOW cable connection averages around 1.5mbps... infinitely faster than dial-up!
As these forms of communication were being introduced, they were sold under the name "High Speed Internet" in order to differentiate them from dial-up. The name has since stuck and now generally refers to any of the fast forms of Internet access that have mostly replaced dial-up service.
