ADSL (asymmetric digital subscriber line)


An 'always on' technology designed to increase the bandwidth available over standard copper telephone wires. "Asymmetric" refers to the fact that the downstream speed is greater than the upstream. Thus, ADSL exploits the trend that most homes and businesses consume more data than they generate. This technology is ideal for one-way applications such as video on demand and graphics downloading, but much less suitable for two-way applications, such as videoconferencing. (see also DSL)
