DSL (Digital Subscriber Line)
Celticweb DSL service is mostly aimed at small to medium businesses but is
also available to home users.
Celticweb DSL service provides small to
medium businesses with Internet access up to 50 times faster than the
typical dial-up modem connection. DSL uses digital subscriber line (DSL)
technology to deliver high-speed Internet connections through the copper
phone lines already in your building.
DSL delivers more speed, reliability
and flexibility than dial-up or ISDN connections and is more cost-effective
than ISDN or dedicated leased line services.
If your business is paying
between $50 and $100 or more per month for a phone line and phone charges
for 56k dialup, it makes sense to switch over to Celticweb DSL and
eliminate those charges. Not only can you get more than twice the speed for
the same or less money, but your internet connection is ALWAYS on, there is
NO dialing required.
