  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.

Speed: The upstream (from your computer) and downstream (to your computer) speeds to the Internet are many times faster than conventional dial-up connections.


Reliability: With Celticweb your network is connected to the Internet full time. Celticweb service is always on, just like a T1 circuit or other leased line; just launch your browser and you're on the 'Net.


Flexibility: Bandwidth, the speed at which Internet content is sent to and from your computer, comes in a range of power levels from 144Kbps to 1.54Mbps. Celticweb's bandwidth capacity can be expanded remotely as your business's Internet usage grows with no hardware modifications to your on-premise equipment.


Cost Effectiveness: Since DSL is provisioned over existing phone lines, it costs significantly less per month than a dedicated leased line service such as frame relay or T1 service. DSL is priced on a flat monthly rate; there are no per-minute charges.


Prices will start at $125 per month for128k access plus installation charges.
