Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL) is the most common form of fixed-line broadband provision for internet access. It is called Asymmetric because Upload speed (to the internet), is much slower than Download speed (from the internet). Typically, a nominal 8MB broadband line might provide 6Mb/s download speed and 0.5Mb/s upload speed. This is fine for general internet use, where the amount of data downloaded from the internet is much greater than the volume sent to the internet. It is less good for applications like VPNs (Virtual Private Networks) where the server on a VPN link may need to upload quite a lot of data. See also SDSL (Symmetric Digital Subscriber Line).
