Digital subscriber line (DSL) is a technology that provides Internet access by transmitting digital data over the wires of a local telephone network. DSL brings high-bandwidth information to homes and small businesses over ordinary copper telephone lines.
DSL service is delivered simultaneously with wired telephone service on the same telephone line. An ordinary telephone connection jack can be used to plug in to DSL Internet access.
DSL is generally much faster than a dialup connection.
How to setup DSL Internet?
Once you are sure that your DSL line is active, you can begin setup. The service requires a DSL modem, which connects to the telephone wall jack and computer. You can add a router to create a home network and with the wireless router you can enjoy high-speed access as you move around your home with a laptop, even connecting from the front porch or backyard.
