What is ADSL?
ADSL is the acronym for Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line. A DSL line where the upload speed is different (usually much higher) from the download speed and that is why it is termed as asymmetric. It is up to 70 times as fast as a 28.8 Kbps modem, and can be used concurrently with voice over the same line. This technology is well suited to the Web, where much more data is sent from a server to your computer than you send to the server.
