The evolution of communication device demands for faster connection and higher data rates. This results in proliferation of new broadband technologies that are being introduced into the market for each interval of every 2 to 3 years. However, these technologies are still facing the challenge of unsatisfied users who request not only faster connection but also reliable connectivity. This paper proposes two cognitive selection mechanisms termed as successive and comparative selection which are applied in multiple broadband user terminals in order to maintain good connection rate. By employing such mechanisms, the authors can observe their performances in terms of optimized speed and switching delay.
