DSL Internet in your area.

DSL stands for Digital Subscriber Line. This technology allows users to connect to the internet by using their existing phone lines. While both DSL and Dial-up internet leverage existing telephone lines, DSL uses a frequency that allows calls and data to be transfered at the same time without interference allowing for users to both talk on their phone and use the internet.

DSL internet would allow service almost everywhere. The main thing to consider is to make sure that your subscription can handle your internet usage. This technology offers an average download and upload speed and the quality of the service is respected, even if there are better and faster technologies. 

DSL Internet Benefits:

  • Because DSL technology uses already existing telephone infrastructure, DSL is known to be the most widely available internet technology in the United States. 
  • DSL is an upgraded version of Dial-up Internet. It allows for the possibility to make inbound and outbound calls even while connected to the internet. 
  • DSL internet service offers a decent speed. The internet connection allows you to have independent connections for each computer for added security. 

DSL Internet Limitations:

  • To receive optimal internet service, the customer needs to be within a certain distance to the central. 
  • Most DSL services will use assymetrical data transfer which means that the download speeds will be much faster than the upload speeds. 
  • Most DSL internet providers will require that you use their modem which you will have to rent at an additional cost per month.
