What is ADSL?

ADSL can be differentiated by the fixed copper connection it needs between your Exchange and your home or office. ADSL has the "A" in front of "DSL" because it's "Asynchronous" - meaning exactly that - "not" going at the same rate. There is an up and a down part to each line or internet connection. In ADSL, the down part of the line is different to the up part. Think of an email, if you receive an email it is the down part, as in download. Sending an email is the "up" part or upload, it's going up to the magical internet clouds.For the average user, they will be viewing or receiving or downloading much more than they upload. Generally a lot more websites are read and viewed, meaning the content is "downloaded" as opposed to content that is being uploaded. For example, a typical site where you would look around to find what you need, and depending on the site, perhaps you may buy something or fill in your details or fill in a contact form. That's pretty much the only "up" part of the whole experience you will contribute... otherwise it is images and content from every single page you view and you are pulling all this info "down" to view on your computer. So in most cases the down pipe needs to be bigger than the up pipe.Well, it doesn't need to be different, it's just that with existing infrastructure (your copper phone line to your house or office), it makes sense to maximise its use. It was a good idea to provide more "lanes" on the one side of the road than on the other side that wasn't being used as much.And even for the very few that do a lot more uploading, like web designers/developers who put the content onto the internet...they generally would still need a bigger download pipe because they're also like the rest of us, they also do lots of downloading and general browsing of the internet.
