Q: How does SmarttNet ADSL compare to existing cable modem services?
Posted by - NA - on 02 Dec 2008 12:01 PM
A: Unlike cable modem service that relies on a network shared by all cable subscribers, SmarttNet uses ADSL technology that provides an Internet connection through your telephone line providing you with a secure and dedicated network. Your SmarttNet ADSL connection also provides you with your own bandwidth. Therefore, performance is not degraded during peak hours. In contrast, cable modem networks are configured as contention networks that means each user’s data must compete for upstream and downstream bandwidth. In addition, SmarttNet ADSL service does not require you to subscribe to cable service.
