Similarly, you may ask, is VDSL the same as DSL?
DSL is a generic term we use to encompass both ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) and VDSL (Very-High-Bit-Rate Digital Subscriber Line). ADSL uses mostly copper cabling and older technology while VDSL encompassed fibre components and newer exchanges for higher throughput.
Additionally, what is a VDSL connection? VDSL stands for very high bit-rate digital subscriber line. VDSL uses copper wires or fiber-optic cables in your phone line to deliver high-speed Internet to your devices. A VDSL modem is connected to your Internet service provider through a phone line.
Similarly one may ask, whats better ADSL or VDSL?
VDSL is full line speed both ways, and is around 5x faster than ADSL for downloads, and approximately 10 x faster for uploads than ADSL. VDSL can reach speeds of more than 50 Mbps downstream, and 10 Mbps upstream.
Am I on VDSL or ADSL?
VDSL stands for Very High Bitrate Digital Subscriber Line. VDSL runs over existing copper lines and delivers much faster download and upload speeds in comparison to ADSL. VDSL is capable of reaching download speeds of more than 50Mbps, and upload rates are approximately 10Mbps.
