ADSL Line Speeds
A quick guide to ADSL line speeds and common Internet activities
The line speed determines how fast you can download information from the Internet. It also makes a difference if you have more than one person using the Internet at the same time – too many users on a slower line could make everyone go slowly and lead to frustration!
Activities, like watching high definition videos over the Internet will not work as well on a slower line and may often pause and buffer (catch up).
Telkom ADSL lines come in speeds of 2, 4, 10, 20 and 40mb (that's megabits per second) The last two high speed services make use of a next generation technology called VDSL and are only available in certain areas.
