What is the difference between ADSL and ADSL2?

The difference between ADSL and ADSL2 is that ADSL2 is an upgraded version having a higher maximum speed, i.e., 12Mbps (Megabytes per second), whereas ADSL can go maximum up to 8Mbps only. ADSL2 also surpasses the basic model in terms of distance it can cover using the same number of copper wires or junction boxes.

Which is faster cable or ADSL2+?

Cable Broadband runs at impressive speeds of up to 30Mbps, but speeds do increase at a faster rate than that of ADSL2+, the further you get away from the node.

How fast is ADSL2+?

24 Mbps
ADSL2 can achieve downstream data rates of up to 12 Mbps speeds at its source while ADSL2 can achieve up to 24 Mbps. ADSL2/2+ are best suited for longer loop lengths. ADSL2 can reach distances of up to 5,000 meters while ADSL2+ can achieve up to approximately 6,000 meters.

Does ADSL2+ support ADSL?

The maximum possible downlink connection speeds for ADSL2/2+ is 24 Mbps, which is substantial higher than the 8 Mbps maximum for ADSL. The term ‘ADSL2+’ is often used on its own, but equipment capable of supporting ADSL2+ will also support ADSL2. ADSL2 uses exactly the same bandwidth as ADSL.

Which ADSL type is the best?

Whatever type of line you have, opting for an ADSL2+ service is always the best option. Firstly, uplink speeds are substantially improved. Secondly, the difference between throughput speed and connection (sync) speed is minimised, meaning that you would achieve higher throughputs even for the same connection speed.

How do I know if I have cable or ADSL?

Run a quick speed test on your computer, and measure the results here:

  1. A speed of 56 kbit/s or less means you have dial-up internet.
  2. Speeds of up to 100 Mbps are typically DSL, cable or fixed wireless.
  3. A speed result of 200-1,000 Mbps means you have either cable or fiber-optic internet service.

What’s the difference between cable and ADSL2 + broadband?

Both types of broadband are fast, running at speeds of up to 24Mbps for ADSL2+ and up to 30Mbps for Cable, but the means to which they enter your home is via different mediums.

How much speed can I get with ADSL2 +?

ADSL2+ runs at speeds of up to 24Mbps, but your speed depends on how close your home is to the nearest telephone exchange. The further away you live, the more speed you’ll lose on the connection. You can have ADSL2+ without a phone service by setting up a Naked DSL connection.

Do you need an ADSL modem to use ADSL2 +?

To use ADSL2+ you need to ensure you have an ADSL2+ enabled modem, as a normal ADSL modem can only run at a maximum of 8,192kbps. Like all types of ADSL broadband, the further you live or work from the telephone exchange will have an impact on the final speed your ADSL2+ connection is when it enters your home or business.

Which is the best cable to use for ADSL?

There is very little benefit in choosing CAT5 or CAT6 cable over the standard CW1308 cable as the extra twists will not benefit the ADSL signal. CAT5/6 cable is much bulkier than CW1308 as it typically has 4 pairs (8 wires) and is usually supplied in a grey finish making more difficult to hide.
