An Asymmetric Digital Subscriber (ADSL) Line.
Connect to the internet via your telephone line. ADSL technology converts your telephone line into a high-speed digital connection.
The benefits of using ADSL broadband:
Even though you’re using your telephone cable for broadband you can still use both data and voice at the same time.
Use existing infrastructure
No large costs for implementation.
Most people qualify for the type of broadband as it can be used on your telephone line.
Improved speed (from dial up)
