Naked DSL broadband: The facts

Naked DSL broadband is a standalone type of Internet connection that does not require a DSL phone service. It is also called dry loop DSL because it does not have any dial tone, as opposed to wet loop DSL.

What is Naked DSL broadband

Overview Many people with high-speed Internet hardly ever use the analogue phone service. In the past, Internet service providers usually required the connection of a live phone line to enable DSL broadband Internet connection. However, since most users use mobile phones or VoIP, telephones are hardly ever used and ISPs are providing consumers with a better option. Copper line Naked DSL only requires a copper line connected from the DSL provider to a home or business. The copper line is connected to the provider’s DSLAM, a network device that allows multiple users to connect to the Internet. Since the line is independent from telephone services, the consumer only needs to pay for the Internet services.

How Naked DSL works

Naked DSL Broadband works the same way as any other DSL service. The user needs to configure his or her broadband modem to gain access Internet access using the DSL service line. After the connection is set up, the user can then connect the computer to the modem and surf the Internet. Services that do not work on Naked DSL Keep in mind that a DSL line with no dial tone cannot be used for devices that require a dial tone. These devices include phones, fax machines, dial-up modems, alarm systems, and dial security cameras. When opting for any of these services, it is best to subscribe to regular DSL instead. Making phone calls Most DSL Internet providers offer free or highly affordable VoIP accounts which allow users to make outgoing calls using broadband Internet connection. VoIP calls can provide quite an excellent quality as long as the Internet connection is good. In addition, they do not cost a lot of money.

Availability

Consumers who like to get Naked DSL service need a phone line. However, not all users can access this type of Internet service. It all depends on the user’s location and the various ISPs operating in the area. To determine whether you can get this type of Internet connection service, call your local DSL ISP for inquiries.
