Description of service

Basic DSL Service, with Downstream Speed of up to 768 Kbps and Upstream Speed of up to 384 Kbps. It is a dedicated connection (which means you don't share bandwidth with your neighbors), unlike cable. This bandwidth guarantees a faster connection speed during those peak times when the neighbors come home and surf the web.


Review of Service

Overall, DSL service has been a saving grace. Once a customer knows that they can use pretty much any router and or switch and not be required to use proprietary software to configure the connection, then things are almost goof proof. Additionally because the phone company is responsible for the line up to the house, the DSL has a much higher up time than most other providers who might be affected by atmospheric interference. It stays constant during peak hours and very seldom has there been any trouble with connection. One of the nicest things is that normally if the phone is working the internet is working as well. This isn't always the case, once every 5 years or so someone might run over the phoneline trunk and cause the system to stop working.


Tips

Even though it may be advertised as a little slower rate than cable or even wireless media, it actually holds its own and beats the others as it has increased resilience to network outages.
