Are you familiar with what ADSL and ADSL 2 are? These are routers that you can use when you would like to use the internet. Nowadays, it is not common for people to become connected to the internet.

In fact, this is always one of the things that people look for. They want to make sure that they will always have a fast internet connection. Both types will make use of the technology that will make connecting to the internet faster but the main difference is that ADSL 2 can offer a faster internet connection between the two. ADSL will allow you to download data in a fast manner but ADSL 2 will be faster.

ADSL is an acronym that stands for Asymmetrical Digital Subscriber Lines; it is an internet connection that was introduced in 1998. It uses copper, which allows the use of the standard telephone. ADSL2 is an improved version of ADSL. It also uses the same amount of copper line.

The main difference between this two-internet connection is the speed; the ADSL2 speed is up to 12Mbps while the ADSL speed is 8Mbps. ADSL2 can give a good network in the distance while the ADSL has a limit to how far it can go.

The ADSL2 was introduced in 2002, while the ADSL was introduced in 1998. ADSL2 has been made to work in all ADSL specs. That is, it is backward compatible with ADSL.
