DSL Internet Service Providers in Hallowell, ME

A digital subscriber line, also known as DSL, is a type of internet service that is delivered through a phone line. Bandwidth within a special range of frequency flows through the line to provide both voice service and an internet connection. To receive DSL internet service, users connect a special modem to their computers. The modem then connects to the ISP through the phone line, and the ISP completes the process through the use of a 'mutliplexer' that connects to the internet.

DSL service in Hallowell, ME offers the benefit of being online and receiving phone calls at the same time. The service does not utilize nodes, which means each home is not forced to share bandwidth and possibly experience degraded service during peak hours or when users abuse resources. While cable advertises speeds much higher than DSL, the DSL service may be faster over the long term because it is more consistent. One drawback of DSL internet is the farther away a customer lives from the line drop, the slower the service will be. It is best practice to contact local providers to discuss options and expectations regarding DSL service. Those who do not have a phone line will need to install one prior to getting DSL internet.
