What is DSL cable for?
Likewise, people ask, what is a DSL cable used for?
It is used to transmit data, voice and video over long distances simultaneously." Instead of carrying a phone conversation or a television signal over these broadband lines, phone companies and television companies now allow data to be sent as well through DSL connections (phone service) and cable connections.
Additionally, is DSL cable same as phone cable? DSL is a very high-speed connection that uses the same wires as a regular telephone line. DSL doesn't necessarily require new wiring; it can use the phone line you already have. The company that offers DSL will usually provide the modem as part of the installation.
Correspondingly, is DSL or cable Internet better?
DSL offers users a choice of speeds ranging from 128 Kbps to 3 Mbps. Cable modem download speeds are typically up to 2 times faster than DSL. The important thing to note about cable Internet connections is that cable technology is based on shared bandwidth with many factors influencing a users download speed.
What does a DSL cable look like?
(The DSL cable looks like a standard telephone cable and has a smaller plug than the yellow Ethernet cable). 1) Connect one end of the DSL cable (usually gray) to the back of the modem by inserting it into the gray jack marked “Phone.”
