ADSL

ADSL is the most common form of broadband. Supplied over the telephone network, packages on offer are generally between 10 to 40 times as fast as using a standard telephone dial-up connection to the Internet.

One of the main benefits that ADSL broadband offers home users is that the one telephone line can be used at the same time for Internet access and telephone calls - although you will still have to pay for the actual cost of any telephone calls you make.

ADSL is currently available in most homes in Scotland.

You can find out what broadband technologies are available to you at home by entering your postcode into the 'Suppliers in your area' section at the top of the page.
