    Types of Broadband Connections | Federal Communications Commission

    The term broadband commonly refers to high-speed Internet access that is always on and faster than the traditional dial-up access. Broadband includes several high-speed transmission technologies such as:

    The broadband technology you choose will depend on a number of factors. These may include whether you are located in an urban or rural area, how broadband Internet access is packaged with other services (such as voice telephone and home entertainment), price, and availability.

    Digital Subscriber Line (DSL)

    DSL is a wireline transmission technology that transmits data faster over traditional copper telephone lines already installed to homes and businesses. DSL-based broadband provides transmission speeds ranging from several hundred Kbps to millions of bits per second (Mbps). The availability and speed of your DSL service may depend on the distance from your home or business to the closest telephone company facility.

    The following are types of DSL transmission technologies:

    the Open Broadband Speed Test

    We’re sorry, the tests appear to have failed.
    This is most likely due to restrictions on your network,
    such as an office or personal firewall,
    or browser plugins that block access to the tests.
    Please check to see if their are any applications or firewalls that could
    be limiting your ability to conduct measurements, and that your
    software is up-to-date.

    Close

    How does the test work?

    The Internet Health Test runs a few short speed tests to several measurement servers on different networks to compare how your broadband connection performance varies to different parts of the Internet. These tests shouldn’t take too long and do not collect personal information from your browser.
