What is ADSL? Definition: ADSL is a type of Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) Internet service commonly used in homes. The difference between DSL and ADSL is type of connection and data transfer speed. DSL has the same speed for data transfer, while ADSL provides an “always on” connection. ADSL connections provide more bandwidth for downloads than for uploads.
ADSL uses most of the channel to send data, and only a small part to receive data. ADSL customers may experience lower data rates depending on provider and service plan.
ADSL can be distributed over short distances from the telephone exchange, typically less than 4 kilometers or 2 miles, but in some cases can exceed 8 kilometers or 5 miles if the originally laid wire gauge allows for further distribution.
