ADSL2 broadband adds key features to regular ADSL (asymmetric digital subscriber line) technology to boost performance and improve data rate and reach. ADSL2 and ADSL2+ broadband offer speeds of up to 24Mbps download and 1Mbps upload, depending on location.
The niche that this technology fills is the growing market for IPTV (Internet Protocol Television) and VoD (Video on Demand) services which require increased bandwidth to stream live video without subjecting the customer to pauses while the program or film downloads over slow connections. To find our more about IPTV, see our what is IPTV guide.
Broadband speed is dependent on location:
ADSL2 broadband is currently for the most only available in urban areas. Insert your postcode into our postcode checker to see if you can access this speedy connection.
The broadband speeds that you can expect depend on the distance of your house from the DSLAM (DSL Access Multiplexer) - the closer you are the faster your connection.
In this way, the DSLAM allows telephone companies and internet service providers to provide fast copper wire internet connection technology (DSL) with the fastest backbone network technology (ATM, asynchronous transfer mode).
