DSL internet service requires a phone line connected to your house and the monthly fees that go along with it. DSL’s quality of service is effected by distance from the provider’s hub and how many other customers are on at the same time.
WISPs offer consistent speeds throughout the day and service doesn’t degrade from one house to the next. Availability of DSL has no bearing on whether you can get Internet access from a WISP. Plus, with the number of WISPs growing rapidly fewer and fewer areas are reliant on obsolete DSL technology. Providers on the UWN consistently offer better performance at lower prices than the DSL competition.
