If you are aware of or use ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) then you should have a general idea of what ADSL2 actually involves. In simplistic terms, it is a recent constituent of the ADSL family which offers enhanced performance and more substantial downloading speeds. It enables users to surpass the original speed of 8Mb used to move broadband. With ADLS2 users will be able to download at speeds in excess of 24 Mb depending on how the ADSL2 is installed. This is a notbale advancement for users who frequently download or watch live video streams online. ADSL2 is actually compatible with all ADSL devices, making upgrade a much easier and cost effective process.

How effective is the connection?

Like many other kinds of internet connections there are specific things that will contribute to lowered performance. Typically, ADSL connections depend on how well the connection is established between the customer's house and the exchange used to enable service. Another determinant that will reduce the performance of the line quality is the distance of the user's home from the closest exchange. This basically means the connection will worsen as the distance from the customer's home increases. Subsequently this will affect downloading speeds greatly and will result in customers who sign up for an 8Mb connection obtaining much less during transfer.

ADSL2 while still susceptible to the element of distance will fare much better because of the method used to accomplish its maximum potential. It is possible for customers to apply for two or more lines using ADSL2. This is allowed because the lines can be bonded to produce speeds up to 30Mb. Hence even if the user lives considerably further from a normal exchange he or she will be able to get a fast enough connection rate once these two lines are bonded.

Is this service available in my area?

ADSL2 is a new development and as a result is not being used in every area that provides ADSL coverage. However, more service providers will undoubtedly begin offering the service over the proceeding few months to a year. To find out if your provider will be implementing this service upgrade call their customer care centres which should have this information on hand. It is likely that there may be some move under way to get this system implemented. It is expected that ADSL2 will become the standard for regular ADSL users. Furthermore the rates the customers will pay will not be much more expensive than the price presently being paid for conventional ADSL service. The prices will get increasingly more affordable when all providers have revamped their systems to enable ADSL2 usage.

Additional Features of ADSL2 Connections

There are a few extra features that will make ADSL2 that much more attractive to the customer, these will include a few of the following.

Improved rate and reach will enable users to get information as mentioned previously at a rate of no less than 12 Mb per second which is much more than the conventional 8Mb per second currently being used by most. Plus the reach for ADSL2 is an addition 600 feet allowing for entirely better connections.

It supports channelization for voice over DSL.

It uses less power than present ADSL models by utilizing a two power management mode.

It begins start up in 3 seconds in comparison to the 10 seconds it now requires for a regular ADSL connection.

It provides bonding which will allow data to be transferred close to the speeds of most fibre optic connections and networks despite using conventional copper lines for the movement of data.
