What is DSL Internet?
DSL internet is an internet connection distributed through copper wire telephone lines. The internet data can be delivered at the same time as the phone service because it utilizes higher frequencies to deliver data. DSL continues to be one of the dominant technologies for broadband connection.
What Does DSL Stand For?
DSL currently stands for Digital Subscriber Line, it used to be Digital Subscriber Loop. Most DSL lines are asymmetric lines or ADSL. ADSL stands for Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line. This means the speed is not the same between uploading and downloading. With any connection the download speed is usually higher than upload speed since most people download information more often than they upload. For users that need their download speed to be equal to upload speed, they can install a Symmetric Digital Subscriber Line (SDSL).
