Things You Should Know About DSL & aDSL2+

March 29, 2012 at 5:28 pm Leave a comment

Many small businesses use DSL or aDSL2+ as their primary Internet service connection. DSL connections do offer good value to small business users.

Proceed with caution when any ISP guarantees the speed of an aDSL2+ or DSL connection, even after you are told your location qualifies.

aDSL2+ and DSL are distance sensitive Internet connections. Speed will depend on your location and your distance from the CO or Central Office.

For example, you find an aDSL2+ connection with advertised speeds of 15mbps / 1mbps. However, depending on distance, there may be up to a 1.5mbps variation on the 15mbps.

Your equipment (router) should be set up to receive the full 15mbps.  Confirm with your ISP that this is the case.

If you do need guaranteed speeds, go for a T1, bonded T1 or fiber. These Internet connections are more costly, but speed is symmetric, consistent and uptime is more reliable.

In a previous post, we looked at why your business might need reliable Internet service. See what fits your business requirements and budget. Always confirm expected speeds and factor in the above mentioned variation.
