Hi,
Different internet service provideers provide net acess thru various means. Like dial up, adsl etc etc..

Regards,
Vishal

Bluetooth is a Personal Area Network technology with low power. Personal Area meaning the spaced around a person - that is 10 meters, not 5 miles. Not even a higher powered technology like Wi-Fi goes beyond the 300 meters.

I suggest you check www.bluetooth.com for the standard and more information.
