ADSL Broadband is the most widely available internet connectivity product for small businesses.
Most of the country has some kind of ADSL broadband connectivity. There are 3 main kinds of ADSL available for small businesses:
- 8Mb Max, which is available throughout the country
- ADSL2+ with download speeds of up to 20Mb
- ADSL2+ annex M, which also has an upload speed of up to 2Mb
The speed of ADSL broadband connections can vary widely, as it is directly related to the distance from the premises to the local exchange – the longer the copper cable phone line, the higher the electrical resistance in the cable and therefore the slower the speed.
