Naked ADSL

Naked ADSL, alternatively known as NDSL, dry loop DSL, naked ADSL broadband or standalone DSL, is a type of broadband Internet connection, similar to regular ADSL, but one that doesn't require the subscriber to have an active telephone line.
ADSL, which is an acronym for Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line, uses an existing copper telephone wire for connecting to the Internet.

Naked ADSL, alternatively known as NDSL, dry loop DSL, naked ADSL broadband or standalone DSL, is a type of broadband Internet connection, similar to regular ADSL, but one that doesn't require the subscriber to have an active telephone line.
ADSL, which is an acronym for Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line, uses an existing copper telephone wire for connecting to the Internet.

Unlike traditional dial-up, however, which is relatively slow at data transmission (56 Kbps), ADSL can accomplish data transfer at much higher rates. Since it works on digital rather than analog frequencies, ADSL is also capable of connecting to the Internet simultaneously while a phone call or fax transmission is being made on the same line.
 

How Naked ADSL is Different
 

Naked ADSL differs from ADSL in that, while it uses the same telephone line, that line is not required to have an active dial tone or to be capable of making or receiving calls. This holds several advantages, particularly for those who use mobile phones almost exclusively and don't require a separate landline at their residence. Discontinuing their telephone service will save them money by relieving the obligation to pay a monthly charge to the phone company. For those who have kept their phone service active simply as a means of having an ADSL or ADSL2+ broadband Internet connection now have an alternative to obtaining that connection, assuming they are in a location where naked ADSL is available.
 

Naked ADSL Plans
 

Naked ADSL has recently gained in popularity and many more companies are now offering this type of Internet service. This includes some of the most popular Internet service providers in the country. Cheap naked ADSL can be obtained for rates that are similar to traditional ADSL, but total expense is lowered by no longer having to pay for an operating telephone line. Contract commitments vary, depending on which plan is chosen. The accompanying naked ADSL compare chart details the specifics of a variety of plans currently on offer.
 

Transmission speeds for naked ADSL are similar to those available with ADSL2+, with downloading as fast as 24 Mbps and uploading speeds at a maximum of about 2 Mbps. As with regular ADSL or ADSL2, a user's distance from the local telephone company exchange will affect transmission speeds. Other factors include the amount of traffic, line quality, the network configuration and the type of DSL equipment being used.
