This is the most common form of Broadband, mostly for home use.
Delivered over copper pairs from the local exchange to nearby street cabinets, and in-turn to your property, the set-up and rental charges are generally very cost-effective. However, due to advent of improved broadband services, such as FTTP (Fibre to the Premises) and FTTC (Fibre to the Cabinet), ADSL2+ is generally not considered as a ‘business-grade’ connectivity solution due to the relatively low upload speeds and the fact it doesn’t come with a Service Level Agreement (SLA), meaning if it goes down it’s fixed on a ‘best endeavours’ basis.
An ADSL2+ service is ‘contended’, which means the bandwidth subscribed to is shared with other customers who have subscribed to the same service. This contended nature means that performance can often be variable dependant on how many subscribers are using it concurrently, and what they’re using it for.
Download speeds are typically a minimum of 17Mbps, and maximum of 19.5Mbps.
Upload speeds can be anything up to 1.5Mbps, but often less.
