Home / Services / 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.

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.
