(A)DSL Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
The (A)DSL Service is based on DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) technology; this means you will be "permanently" connected to the Internet through your existing analog phone service.
We are currently taking orders for 1-Meg Modem and ADSL service in the Greater Ottawa/Gatineau and surrounding areas. Please contact us to see if you are in our ever expanding service area.
Please note that not all locations
in every city will be eligible to receive ADSL services. Distance and
line quality limitations can make service inoperative for some locations.
Bell Canada will perform a line quality check after your order is placed
to help determine if you can receive (A)DSL services.
For (A)DSL Modem connections, we support PC-compatible computers running Windows 95 or Windows 98, or Macintosh computers running Open Transport (TCP/IP) 1.1.1 or higher. Windows 3.1 is not supported. Any computer needing to access the Internet over the ADSL line must have a 10baseT or 100baseT network card.
Computers running other operating systems such as Linux and Windows NT should also work as long as they have a network card and are able to obtain their IP address via DHCP. These operating systems are not officially supported, however we will provide assistance on a best effort basis.
ADSL outperforms ISDN in both performance and cost. Since your ADSL line is always connected over your phone line, there are no additional Microlink fees as with ISDN. ADSL's speed leaves ISDN's 64k or even 128k in the dust.
Cable - Cable modems looked quite
promising several years ago, but now many industry analysts are calling
cable modems dead on arrival. While cable modems have the capability
to be quite fast, 2 major problems with cable modems remain unsolved.
Both problems are caused by the fact that by its nature, cable modem
technology is a shared medium. You share your Internet connection
with your neighbor, the guy across the street, and your entire section
of town. One problem this causes is that when everybody on the block
is using their cable modem at the same time, access can get quite
slow. With the right software, anybody you're sharing the connection
with can see everything you do on the Internet. There's no privacy
if you've got a cable modem. The other problem is that cable's existing
broadcast technology is very limited when uploading bandwidth, a
very important concern if you intend to host your own Internet servers. Since
ADSL is a dedicated technology, the remains both speedy and secure
for all your business needs.
T1 and ATM - ADSL is however no
substitute for a T1 or ATM connection, it is however the closest
you can get without paying thousands of dollars a month. These services
are built to resell bandwidth in mass or to accommodate very large
networks. T1 and ATM services symmetrically deliver extremely high
bandwidth at full duplex, which is usually not needed by most business
today. ADSL provides enough bandwidth for many years to come.
There are several different components
that make up the total cost of (A)DSL Service: the initial installation
fee, the hardware, the line cost, and the Internet service. We have
described below each aspect of our (A)DSL costing model.
Initial Installation - The
(A)DSL activation fee is waived until further notice.

low as for just $28.95/month for the "DSL Basic Service" and
