Symmetric Digital Subscriber Line

For a perspective of all forms of DSL, see DSL.

SDSL is a form of DSL. SDSL is the same as HDSL but requires only one line. SDSL has a transfer rate of up to 3 Mbps in both directions. It is popular primarily in Europe.

SDSL uses high-frequency pulses and cannot be used simultaneously with voice over the same wires. SDSL requires its own SDSL modem.
