What is DSL?
DSL stands for Digital Subscriber Line. The DSL lines make use of available telephone lines to provide households and businesses with Internet access. This high speed bandwidth connection is made possible via a phone wall jack that connects to an existing telephone network in the home or business.
Type types of DSL:
- Symmetrical DSL: this connection offers the same bandwidth for both upload and download speeds.
- Asymmetrical DSL: this connection offers more bandwidth for download and less for upload meaning that download speeds are faster than upload.
Pros of DSL:
- DSL is widely available due to telephone line infrastructure.
- DSL is cheaper than satellite or broadband connections.
- Several users can be online at once without impacting the line speed.
Cons of DSL:
- Faster connection types are available but at a higher cost.
- Internet speeds decrease the further away you are from the ISP central office.
