What is ADSL2+?
ADSL2+ is a type of internet connection which uses phone lines to transmit data. Unlike the NBN, which uses fibre optic cables to transmit, ADSL2+ uses copper phone lines. That’s why a lot of properties can already get ADSL2+ connections: they don’t need to wait for the NBN rollout, since the phone lines are already there. Also, unlike dial-up internet, ADSL2+ allows you to use the internet and your phone at the same time.
What’s the difference between ADSL, ADSL2 and ADSL2+?
ADSL is the older version of ADSL2 and ADSL2+. It was developed in 1998, and then as the technology improved, ADSL2 and ADSL2+ were developed to provide faster speeds and high bandwidth.
How fast is ADSL/ADSL2/ADSL2+?
Speeds for most internet connections vary depending on a number of factors, but the maximum download speeds for each connection are below.
What is the best ADSL2+ plan for me?
There is no short answer to that question. It really depends on your individual needs. Luckily for you, we’ve built a super smart algorithm which determines what is important to you and only shows you the plans which are best suited to your needs. All you have to do is answer a few simple questions, starting with your postcode/suburb (at the top of this page).
How do I get connected?
Once you’ve decided which plan is right for you, just click ‘Sign Up Online’ and follow the prompts, or call the number listed! Once the provider has your details, they’ll be able to schedule your connection. If you have a phone line, all you’ll need to do is connect a modem to it (the provider will let you know if they provide a modem for you).
