For speed, the internal microprocessor has been tweaked to perform at high rates of speed. One such microprocessor is the Intel Pentium chip that is the fastest commercial microprocessor on the market.
In addition to internal speed and to allow faster hook- up to the Internet, faster telephone lines, most notably the fiber optic lines, have been added, for an extra charge, to transfer data about 4 times faster than conventional phone lines. As speed enhances, memory and storage space is needed to hold excess information. More and improved rams are getting created to transfer data a an enormous speed . For long term storage of large amounts of data, hard drives have been under a constant upgrade of performance.
