Re: ADSL versus Serial

A 1Mbps serial link is a dedicated 1Mbps link to your isp. It allows for 1Mbps upload and 1Mbps download concurrently. In an ADSL environment the download is higher then the upload. ADSL stands for Asymetrical Digital Subscriber Line. It allows for about 4 to 5 Mbps download (depandant upon your ISP and how far you are from the central office) and about 700kbps upload.Dependant upon your day to day traffic needs you may want a serial link over an ADSL link.....
