Broadband connections could become much faster in the future, according to an Australian scientist.

Dr John Papandriopoulos from the University of Melbourne has claimed that ADSL could be made much faster simply by reducing background transmission 'noise'.

He argues that this method could help to increase the data rate of standard ADSL by a factor of 100, thereby significantly improving the speed of internet access.

"Cross-talk in current DSL networks effectively produces noise onto other lines, and this reduces the speed of your connection," explains Dr Papandriopoulos, according to

Dr Papandriopoulos is now looking to expand on his theory and develop the new ADSL initiative to deliver far greater internet speeds.
