Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Lines (ADSL) are a cost-effective fixed line solution for reliable internet access. They are called asymmetrical because your download speed is higher than your upload speed. These types of connections are well suited to your regular internet uses – including emailing, browsing, watching videos and social media. VDSL stands for Very-high-bit-rate Digital Subscriber Line, and delivers a much faster experience. VDSL is ideal for handling both high demand web services like HD streaming, and tasks like VoIP over a single connection. VDSL has only been made available to a small number of locations but is growing as existing infrastructure is upgraded.
