SDSL network expanding (04/07/2004)

 SDSL network expanding!

Although this doesn't really affect us in Moray, BT have announced that a further 150 exchanges will be upgraded to support SDSL. Closest to home, is Aberdeen, which was also one of the first exchanges in scotland to have ADSL when it was first released.

The complete list of additional 150 exchanges can be found

SDSL means Symmetric Digital Subscriber Line. The Broadband that we tend to have in our homes is ADSL - Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line. with ADSL out upload speeds are limited to 256kbps. No matter whether we have a 512kbps or 2Mbit connection we are limited to 256kbps (about 30K/sec) upload speed. With SDSL the upload speed and download speeds are the same so with a 2Mbit SDSL connection you will be able to upload and download at 2Mbit *dribble* Sadly SDSL is being targeted at businesses so it will probably be a while before the home users and rural areas get a proper taste of SDSL. It will also cost much more per month to get SDSL, and in many cases there is little reason for ADSL (But then I'm sure someone said that about 56k a few years ago.....)
