DSL access into your business or home office is becoming very useful and productive. For those of you that are not yet familiar with DSL here a short explanation. DSL let's you talk and surf the web at the same time using your existing phone line. No more need for a second line. The speed of a DSL line can be equivalent to a T-1 (1.544 MB or about 187,000 bytes a second), for much less. The only factor is the distance between you and your CO (Central Office). You should be within 3 miles (or roughly 18,000 feet) to get a good speed. For businesses with a phone system, you can use your existing fax or dial-up modem lines since DSL will ONLY work on an ANALOG phone line.
