I'm not curious

Are we likely to see ADSL 3 any time soon?

Is home Internet provision going to follow the mobile Internet with further technological advances? Weâve witnessed the move from 3G to 4G so ADSL 3 must be due soon, right?

If youâre a home Internet user who is desperately wanting to hear about the next step in your user journey itâs perhaps important to note that ADSL has already advanced considerably since its inception in the late 1990s. Looking at the history of the home Internet provision up to the present day makes us realize how lucky we are.

How far has ADSL progressed?

The 1990s were still in full swing when the original Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) service took its bow. ADSL did not come into existence until later in the decade. It differed from DSL in that the download speed was faster than the upload speed; previously they had been at the same level. This is where the asymmetric addition to the name came in.

It wasnât long before users were treated to technological improvements with the appearance of ADSL2 in 2002. The quality and speed of connection were both improved, read more at iiNet. Hot on the heels of ADSL came ADSL2+ in 2005. Download speeds saw a significant improvement to 20Mbps due to the increased bandwidth that became available.

There is no suggestion of ADSL3 on the horizon, or even any suggestion as to what another update would actually be titled. That being said, with the amount of improvements that have already been made to ADSL it seems very unlikely that they wonât continue. As technology advances in general so the prospect of its interaction with home Internet provision becomes more likely. The ASDL story is not finished yet.

What makes ADSL such an impressive service?

You may have a tendency to complain when your internet connection is a little slow but just think how lucky you are with the service you normally get throughout most of the country. This is especially the case for users who have access to ADSL2+ which is not available everywhere. If you use the Internet a great deal and you enjoy watching videos and gaming then you will benefit greatly from using ADSL2+ with its impressive speeds.

Itâs the most reliable and fast ADSL provision yet and itâs truly impressive. With prior versions of ADSL the further away from the central office (CO) where the main wiring was housed you were located the slower your connection was. This is no longer the case with high speeds being available at a greater distance.

Obviously not everyone has access to ADSL 2+,and those who have access do not always use the Internet enough to need it, but the fact is this reliably fast connection does exist. If you feel that you could benefit from using it then contact your Internet Service Provider to see if you have access where you live. Itâs the best ADSL provision you can get until maybe ADSL 3 appears in the future.
