Adsl2 Modem Services
ADSL2 is a international communications standard which extends upon the speed of ADSL. ADSL2 is a form of digital subscriber line technology which makes it possible for faster data speeds over a copper phone line than a regular dial-up modem. It uses frequencies not used by your phone service, a phone line splitter makes it possible for phone calls and ADSL2 to be used simultaneously. ADSL2 allows for service to be distributed 2 to 5 miles away from the phone company`s central office.
The reason for which it is called asymmetrical is because the download speed of ADSL2 is always higher than the upload speed. Fast upload speed is unnecessary for most home users, as they will be mostly downloading files and web browsing. ADSL2 is common and offered to many homes all over the world. A ADSl2 connection is typically made through a DSL modem which receives the DSL and Internet signals. ADSL2 is capable of 12 Mbps downstream and 3.5 Mbps upstream, which is relatively fast for a home connection.
