/ DSL / What is DSL
DSL provides high-speed Internet access over existing copper
telephone lines. No special wires are necessary; just the
plain old phone lines that are already out there. DSL utilizes
a bridge or router at the customer location, which connects
to a Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexor (DSLAM) in
the telephone company's Central Office (CO). The DSLAM is
located in leased space in the CO to collocate the DSLAM.
The copper phone lines that connect to the bridge/router at
the customer location travel through the DSLAM in the CO;
this is what enables high-speeds on the line. The DSLAM is
connected to cyberMIND and we are connected to the Internet.
cyberMIND DSL allows you to send and receive data at speeds

streaming, virtual private networking, and e-commerce. You

How fast is fast?
If you receive an E-mail with a 2 MB attachment (2 MB could
be a financial spreadsheet, a graphic file, a presentation,
or a large text document) it would take you 9.2 minutes to
open that attachment with a 28.8 Kbps modem. With DSL, you
could open the attachment in about 15 seconds.
In addition to providing the highest speeds possible over
copper wires, DSL provides you with a dedicated connection.
There is no need
to dial-up to connect to the Internet. Simply click on an
icon and you're online. No dialing, no logging on, no more
wasted time or frustration.
