ADSL Broadband Plans

Here we will have a look at ADSL broadband Internet plans. This is where you’re looking for a standard broadband access via a phone line with speeds up to 8 mbps.

Remember dial-up Internet access? Well ADSL will do the same thing, but at 100 times the speed. Most Internet service providers will offer a range of plans to suit any user.

How does ADSL Internet work for me?

To access ADSL Internet you will need a standard telephone line connected to your home or business. The signal used to transmit data is a different frequency to that used for the telephone so this means that the line can be used for both purposes at the same time. All that needs to be done is for a filter to be used to separate the signals.

These filters are inexpensive and will eliminate what is known as “white noise” which would otherwise be apparent on your phone or fax line. Data coming to your computer from the Internet usually travels faster than the data which is transmitted from your computer but this doesn’t really affect most home users.

But for businesses this might become an issue when they want to transmit large files. In this case SDSL (or Symmetric Digital Subscriber Line) will be more appropriate because both data streams can be transmitted at the same speed. You will need to install a dedicated telephone line for this purpose.

If you choose an ADSL Internet plan, then your Internet service provider will generally give you an ADSL modem free of charge as part of the package.

By the way, you don’t have to worry about “down” times because as long as your computer is turned on it will remain connected to the Internet automatically, unless you physically turn the modem off.

Why should you choose an ADSL plan?

The speed at which your service will operate can be affected by a few things such as the physical distance between your computer and the telephone network exchange, so you may want to check the expected speed with your provider before signing up for any plans.

As a start-up option you should look for flexibility in the plan, so that if your needs change, it will be a simple matter to upgrade. All plans should be chosen according to your individual needs and this will be largely dependent upon your expected usage. Budget ADSL plans are the most basic on the market and will provide adequate access for those who want to do a little surfing, send a few e-mails a day and maybe download a song or two.

After you have been using a basic plan for a number of months it is a good idea to review your usage to see whether there is a better option for you.

Be careful though, because once you have exceeded your monthly data allowance, any extra usage will be charged at a higher rate. Whilst some companies will send you a warning e-mail as you approach your monthly limit, you should check for yourself at least halfway through every month to determine whether you need to either slow down your access, or decide to upgrade to a higher plan.
