is KansasNet DSL?
KansasNet DSL is a high-speed, dedicated Internet
connection that resides on any qualified existing plain telephone
service phone line.
What are the
KansasNet DSL over Dial-up service?
First, and foremost, DSL is tons faster than your
dial-up. How much faster?
You may have heard of a “56Kbps” modem (the highest data rate
standard analog dial-up modem). With
KansasNet DSL in AT&T/SBC Territories, you can achieve a downstream connection at speeds up to
6000Kbps (6Mb/s) (Premium/Advanced+ service options).
Another major advantage of KansasNet’s DSL service,
is that it does not affect the “dial-tone” part of the phone line
that it resides on. In
other words, while browsing the Internet at high-speed, you can send
& receive phone calls or FAXs on the same phone line. This
eliminates the cost of an additional phone line to connect to the
multiple computers share one connection to the Internet.
A KansasNet DSL connection is easily shared with other PCs with
the addition of some simple networking components.
dialing up, NO BUSIES

Internet? With KansasNet
DSL, you will NEVER get a busy signal again.
DSL is a dedicated service. Once
your PC is turned on, you are online.
You have an access port in our equipment that is dedicated to

can I measure my KansasNet
DSL connection rate?
Check out our online bandwidth speed test
are the advantages of KansasNet DSL over “cable” Internet service?
most common method of bandwidth allocation over “Cable Internet”
networks is to introduce the connection to the “node” of the
network. The node is what
ties everyone in your area to the cable network. The downside of this
method is that there is a pool of resources for everyone to draw from.
The more connections drawing from these resources, the less that
others will have. In
layman’s terms, fighting with everyone on your “node” for
DSL is different. Each KansasNet
DSL customer has a reserved port directly into KansasNet’s network.
For this reason, we can allocate bandwidth, and make connection
rate guarantees. Your
connection will be the only one drawing bandwidth from your assigned
port into our network.
