If you've been looking for faster than 56k modem speeds, you may find it in ADSL. ADSL stands for Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line, and is something that we've been hearing about for a couple of years now. But Unfortunately, very, very few people have had access to it. Untlil recently this 1.5 megabit-per-second modem technology has only been available in a few test markets. However, phone companies--which have been holding up the works as they slowly upgrade their equipment to make it compatible with ADSL--are finally getting their act together. Expect wider availability of ADSL beginning in Septeber. Check with your phone company for more information.
