ADSL2+ Broadband Internet FAQ

What Is ADSL2+ Broadband Internet?

It provides you with fast access to large websites, streaming media such as Internet Radio, multiplayer gaming and a wide range of other online services.

If you are a business owner, ADSL2+ Broadband Internet can provide you with the means of allowing your staff to work from home.

ADSL is slower than ADSL2+ Broadband, around 1.5mbps compared with 24mbps.

If you have ADSL2+ Broadband Internet you cannot downgrade to ADSL - but then, why would you want to?
