What is DSL?

The concept of what DSL is is well known to Internet users, or rather to those who have access to the Network via a telephone line. Digital Subscriber Line (asymmetric digital line) or DSL is a method of transmitting the Internet and television signal over a telephone line.

The fact is that the use of such a communication transmission tool has now become very convenient, since the transmission speed allows you not only to enter and view the necessary pages on the Internet, but also to watch movies online and speak on Skype. Transmission speed is much faster than modem. The advantage of such a connection is not only superfast, but also the ability to use the phone simultaneously with the Internet.

If we talk about what a DSL connection is, we can say that this is a fast data transmission over a telephone line. Companies that connect this type of connection, put a special distributor that allows you to be on the Internet and talk on the phone, Skype, watch videos.

This distributor is connected to a telephone network outlet.You also need a DSL modem or router, the same as the usual Internet modem of any provider, only giving great speed. Although it all depends on the tariff you choose: it will be the standard amount of traffic per month or a few months or unlimited access (unlimited Internet). The cost also depends on the package you choose to connect.
