Without a broadband connection, industries in rural areas cannot compete with the industries in urban areas. Although it is possible to lease a private T1 line from the local phone company, It can be very expensive to operate and extremely troublesome to hook up. That is where DSL (digital subscriber link) broadband internet access comes in. It is not nearly as expensive as a T1 line, and much easier to hook up because it uses existing phone lines to transfer data. Unlike an internet connection using a modem, DSL sends a digital signal over the line that does not tie up the phone line or affect voice communications. It is also much faster because the signal must not be converted to analog to be sent over the line.
DSL allows a high speed connection, which is up to 50 times faster than a conventional dial-up modem. This is high speed, since even on a perfect, noise-free phone line, a single subscriber can only get a maximum of a 53 kilobytes per second (1,000 kilobytes in each megabyte). With a fast internet connection, and an always on service, time is not wasted waiting for it to dial or tying up valuable phone lines. Multiple computers can also be easily connected to a single DSL line.
