ADSL is a DSL line that is mostly for low use. It has download speeds many times faster than its upload speeds. This is usually for simple tasks such as downloading and viewing webpages.
SDSL has upload speeds almost the same as its download speeds. This makes it optimal for gaming and servers of any type. Because the upload speed is high it is more expensive than ADSL.
For most uses ADSL is the best choice.
Feedback received on this FAQ entry:
- Much Appreciated!
- also kind of missed the point. SDSL loops can be up to 30,000 feet long where as ADSL will only reach about 10,000 feet.
SDSL's advantage is that distance. Customer that don't live near enough to the CO for ADSL will still be about to get something better than dial up. This is good if you live in a rural area.
