1 The idea behind 'DSL'

You do most of your work using the internet. And its nothing new if u want to use the telephone while you are online. 'DSL' is on high demand yet very few people ponder about how it works.
Digital Subscriber Line is a technology for bringing high-bandwidth information to homes and small businesses over ordinary copper telephone lines or simply a method for moving regular data over phone lines.

The copper wires from the standard telephone installation have lots of room for carrying more than your phone conversations - they are capable of handling a much greater bandwidth, or range of frequencies, than that demanded for voice. DSL exploits this "extra capacity" to carry information on the wire without disturbing the line's ability to carry conversations. The entire plan is based on matching particular frequencies to specific tasks.By limiting the frequencies carried over the lines, the telephone system can pack lots of wires into a very small space without worrying about interference between lines. Modern equipment that sends digital rather than analog data can safely use much more of the telephone line's capacity. DSL does just that! The idea behind it.... just amazing!
