DSL and its speed

DSL means Digital Subscriber Line. There are many types according to the need of users like ADSL, R-ADSL, HDSL, SDSL, and VDSL. The rates of DSL connection depends upon its speed and downloading or uploading allowed traffic.

Most homes and small business users use the asymmetric DSL (ADSL).
DSL can use the already existing phone line. Voice call can be made even when the internet connection is open. The connection is faster for receiving data than it is for sending data over the Internet. The actual speed at user end may be different from one user to another due to the modem speed, telephone line condition and the distance from services provider to user.

Many DSL providers offer free speed test software with internet connection package to check the speed. DSL speed test result will vary in different times. The actual speed may be the average speed of DSL speeds taken at different times in a day.
