Broadband Flavors
digital subscriber line dsl
Digital Subscriber Line (DSL)
  • Uses plain old phone lines (POTS)
  • Voice and data over the same line
  • Speed 1.5-8 Mbps
  • Requires location near central phone office or switch (18,000 feet)
  • Phone lines are everywhere but not all of them are able to support DSL
  • Direct one-on-one connection; bandwidth is not shared with neighbors
cable modem
Cable Modem
  • Faster than DSL
  • Uses the same cable television lines that deliver pictures and sound to your TV set
  • Shared connection; speeds can slow down when many people in the same neighborhood are online
  • Easy to install
broadband over powerline bpl
Broadband Over Powerline (BPL)
  • Delivered through power lines
  • Almost all homes and businesses are connected to the power grid
  • Still in early stages of development
  • Potential interference with ham radio signals
  • Speeds similar to DSL and cable
satellite
Satellite
  • Available most places including hard-to-reach rural areas
  • Slower than cable or DSL. WildBlue download speeds up to 1.5 Mbps and upload speeds up to 256Kbps.
  • Trees and heavy rain affects signal
  • Need unobstructed view of southern sky
