Private DSL Networks

Private DSLDigital Subscriber Line (DSL) technology allows data to be sent across copper wire that would traditionally be used for telephone service. These copper wires are very common in existing environments, having been used for telephone systems with extensions.

A private DSL Network is a very cost effective way of connecting multiple sites to a main site in a hub and spoke network design. The service does not touch the internet in any way and is totally private and secure.

Private DSL can also be incorporated into a solution with other technologies such as WiFi, to build a wide area network based on size, number of users, and data profiles of each site. This gives you a cost effective and efficient solution fulfilling your exact needs.


The existing ADSL and ADSL2+ broadband services have fixed bit rates for downloading and uploading, and cannot support high definition video because of bandwidth limitations. VDSL does not have these limitations and, understandably, VDSL2 has a much greater range than VDSL1. However, ADSL still performs better, in terms of how much distance is between points before the service is seriously compromised or unavailable, and is more cost-effective for the average user.

One downside is that while VDSL2 could start with a theoretical maximum of up to 250Mbps (if the computer was inside the telephone exchange), it quickly drops to 100Mbps if the computer moves just half a kilometre away. At one kilometre the rate halves to just 50Mbps. ADSL2+ matches the performance of VDSL if the computer moves to just 1.6km away from the telephone exchange.

The specific benefits of a Private DSL Network:

  • Choice of ADSL and VDSL2 depending on your business needs
  • Super-fast network speeds up to 100Mbps (with VDSL2)
  • Totally secure method of connecting to your private network
  • Simple, fast, installation
