DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) is a communications medium used to transfer digital signals over standard telephone lines. Along with cable Internet, DSL is one of the most popular ways ISP’s provide broadband Internet access. Symmetric DSL (SDSL) splits the upstream and downstream frequencies evenly, providing equal speeds for both sending and receiving data. However, since most users download more data than they upload, ISPs typically offer asymmetric DSL (ADSL) service. DSL’s popularity comes from the fact you are provided High Speed Internet Access at a cost-effective monthly price.
