ADSL modem USB is a very cost-effective way for any of the users to link to ADSL broadband. ADSL is an acronym for Asymmetrical Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL). It is a type of DSL, that is, a technology for data communications which is useful for faster transmission of data through telephone lines of copper. It facilitates the connection of computers to routers or through to a DSL telephone line so as to be able to use ADSL services. Its data transmission speed is much faster than that of a conventional voiceband modem. This is because it uses frequencies which are not typically used during a voice phone call. Like numerous other modems, this product is a transceiver type hence it is sometimes referred to as ATU-R or simply, DSL Transceiver/ DSL modem.
