A decade ago, we never dreamt to have high-speed connections to the Internet and transfer data at such a rapid rate, but with the advancements in technology even much more is possible now. DSL is a well-known Internet technology system that has introduced VDSL as a provider of data transfer services.

Types of DSL

DSL technology works with a number of variations with its own mechanism and advantages. ADSL or asymmetric DSL works by downloading faster than it uploads, and that is why it is a good choice for users who prefer to download more than they send. HDSL is high bit-rate DSL that operates at a speed of about 1.5Mbps. Downloading and uploading takes the same amount of time, but the catch is that you need two lines aside from your phone line. MSDSL is the symmetric type technology, where the transfer rate is variable. The speed is set by the service provider, and the higher your price plan the faster your rate. RADSL is a variant of ADSL where the modem can change the speed of the download or uploads depending on the strength of the connection.


VDSL, or very high bit-rate DSL, is the latest in the DLS range. It can provide speeds of up to 52 Mbps. This is a huge step up when compared to the maximum of 10 Mbps that ADSL provides. It is based on two different technologies known as DMT (Discrete multitone modulation) and QAM (Quadrature amplitude modulation). Only one type is used at a time, because they are not compatible with each other. Not only does this enable VDSL to provide you with high-speed connections, but it also allows you to get HDTV and videos on demand. This makes it one of the first systems that will enable you to have an all-round entertainment experience. As such it is widely believed that VDSL will actually be combined with HDTV packages.

VDSL is relatively new in the market, and companies don’t simply want to flood the market with it. It has been released in some countries. Developers want to see the response of users and to get an idea of just how big the potential market could be. For now you have to do research to find VDSL technology service online. The question on everyone’s mind is how much this will really cost. At the moment it is quite expensive given the quality of technology used and the amazing benefits, but when it starts to become more common it will become cheaper. This will largely be due to competition between service providers in order to attract customers.

It is clear that VDSL has been a huge step up in the range of DSL. It comes with an enormous amount of benefits, further allowing users to have an all-in-one experience through one system. This helps save time and money and allows for less disorder. The IT community and users all over the world will wait with bated breath to see how VDSL is received.
