Optimal ADSL2+ speeds require compatible ADSL2+ modem and filters. ADSL2+ customers obtain connection speeds exceeding 7Mbps. Actual speeds will vary due to many factors including distance from the local telephone exchange, the quality of the customer’s copper phone line, cabling and equipment.
Very-high-bit-rate digital subscriber line 2 (VDSL2) is an access technology that exploits the existing infrastructure of copper wires that were originally deployed for traditional telephone service as a way of delivering very high speed internet access. The main high-speed link (e.g. a fibre optic connection) terminates at a hub near the customers’ location. The existing copper wire infrastructure is then used to carry the high speed connection for the short remaining distance to the customers.
