What is ADSL and how does it work?
Voice ADSL broadband Internet access gives you lightning-quick Internet
access without the need for a separate phone line.
ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) uses your existing telephone line
by splitting the signal into two channels, one used for voice communications and
the other used for the high-speed data connection. It delivers Internet access
at much higher speeds than a conventional 56k modem-between 5 and 25 times
faster. And while online, you can still use your phone.
How do I set up my Voice ADSL connection?
Setting up your Voice ADSL connection is easy, because we provide you with a
pre-configured modem - all you have to do is plug it in and turn it on!
You will have immediate Internet access because with ADSL there is no need to
dial up. As long as your ADSL modem is turned on and plugged connected, your
internet connection is always on.
A typical home or small office ADSL configuration includes an ADSL modem
connected to your computer with an ethernet card or USB cable, and one or more
filters. Filters fit between a telephone cord and the telephone, and are
required to filter out the frequency (noise) used by the ADSL data traffic.
A typical corporate ADSL office is similar, but connects through an ethernet
connection and ethernet switch.
Even though in most cases your ADSL modem comes pre-configured you will still need to setup your email client to connect to the Voice mail servers.
For specific instructions on setting up your email client, see our Email Setup page.
