SLT Broadband provides you consistent, uninterrupted, high speed internet access through ADSL technology. It converts your regular phone line into a high-speed digital link, enabling simultaneous transmission of voice and data, as opposed to dial-up internet. As a result of switching to Broadband ADSL, data can be transferred at greatly increased speeds.) and above.
Broadband refers to a form of telecommunication that allows higher data transfer rates. Broadband transfers data at least 10 times faster than standard dial-up, because it provides wide band of frequencies to transfer data at the same time.
ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) is a broadband connection technology which utilizes existing copper wired telephone networks. ADSL is ‘asymmetric’ because it facilitates different speeds for downloading and uploading, for optimized performance. This is the reason why ADSL packages always quote higher download speeds compared to upload speeds.
SLT offers seven Broadband packages.
