ADSL Explained

ADSL Explained

What is ADSL?

ADSL is an abbreviation for Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line. Doesn’t tell you much does it?

In a nutshell; ADSL is the method used to connect you to the Internet via your telephone line. That means the minimum requirement is a postpaid BTC fixed line in order to apply for ADSL.

Why choose ADSL?
Well, a couple reasons spring to mind. It’s cheaper than say OPQ’s wireless offerings and maybe we don’t currently offer Wireless Internet in your area.

Why is it cheaper?
Because OPQ cannot offer any guarantee for service levels with ADSL connections and because ADSL is a third party product; we do not control the entire connection.

Will OPQ be offering Wireless Internet in my area soon?
OPQ are busy with our wireless expansion plans. We’ll keep you posted!
