Advantages of DSL
One of the major advantages of DSL Internet is that it offers instant connectivity and fast speed in comparison to dial-up Internet service. Like cable Internet service, DSL is always on, so you do not have to wait while it connects.
Another advantage to DSL is that you can use your phone line for placing calls and still remain connected to the Internet. Though DSL service uses your existing telephone line, it does not interfere with it.
Security is another possible advantage. DSL can be more secure than cable Internet, as DSL transmits data on a dedicated line from your computer, while cable transmits your data in a more shared environment.
DSL Internet can also be more cost effective than cable Internet service. In recent years, DSL companies have been able to offer lower rates which makes it only slightly more expensive than dial-up service, but oftentimes cheaper than cable Internet. In addition, some DSL providers now offer "lite" versions of DSL that are extremely affordable.
