ADSL stands for ‘Asymmetrical Digital Subscriber Line’. It is a type of internet connection that uses the same wires that are used in residential homes to make telephone calls. However, ADSL works on a different frequency to a phone, so the technology enables users to remain connected to the internet while still being able to make telephone calls.
ADSL2+ is the next step up from standard ADSL and generally provides a faster internet speeds. The closer you are to the exchange, the faster the speed you will enjoy.
ADSL2+ can be ideal for bandwidth heavy applications such as:
* streaming video
* downloading music
* online gaming
* viewing of content heavy websites.
