About DSL Internet

Broadband delivered using digital subscriber lines (DSL) is very popular in the United States. With over 500 different providers offering DSL Internet service, it is available to 90% of Americans. Chances are you have at least one DSL Internet provider in your area.

DSL uses existing phone lines to deliver high-speed Internet to homes and businesses. DSL Internet is NOT dial-up. Although it uses the same wires and jacks as your phone system, you don’t have to dial out to use it and it won’t tie up your phone line. DSL runs on an entirely different frequency than a voice phone call. It can be up to ten times faster than dial-up Internet.
