DSL Basics
DSL stands for Digital Subscriber Line. This technology utilizes the existing copper phone lines you already have installed to your house to bring high-speed Internet access to you. It uses an inaudible signal that permits continuous Internet service without tying up the phone or causing busy signals.

A special modem converts the digital signal, and the phone company programs your phone line in their switch to enable it to carry the service. However, there is a limit to the distance that copper wire can carry the signal effectively. In Fairpoint service areas, we will need to perform an initial line qualification to make certain that service is available at your location.
