Your #1 Source for DSL Availability and Ordering!



SDSL vs. ADSL Small and medium sized businesses benefit from technology in countless ways. But, in order to make the right decision, you need to have all of the information available when making decisions about your business and how to maximize its potential with High Speed Internet Services. There are several "flavors" of DSL available in the marketplace today. Here is a comparison of ADSL and SDSL technologies to help in this process.

There are two types of speed inherent with DSL services. Downstream speed is the rate at which you receive data and how fast you can "download" information from the world wide web.Upstream speed is the rate at which you send data to another PC, system, traffic on the Internet or how fast you "upload" information.

The "S" in SDSL stands for symmetric which means that the speed you send data is the same as the speed at which you receive data. Spectrum Net Designs offers SDSL so your upstream and downstream speeds are the same. SDSL is designed for business applications because so many applications require high-speed connectivity for data applications.

The "A" in ADSL stands for asymmetric. This means that the speed you send data is not the same as the speed you receive data. Your upstream speed is slower than your downstream speed. ADSL was designed for residential use where the user is usually more concerned with downloading larger amounts of information and does not have too many applications of sending large files or data.
