Standard phone lines can only carry a limited range of signal frequencies that correspond to those heard in normal human speech. Dial-up modems use this range for sending and receiving data therefore are limited in their speed.
ADSL Broadband on the other hand transmits data at a higher frequency and across a wider range than those used for speech so faster data speeds can be achieved. In order to take advantage of this, a DSLAM (DSL Access Multiplexer) needs to be installed in the telephone exchange nearest your home or business, and Telecom must connect your phone line to it.
An advantage of this is that normal voice frequencies are not affected by the ADSL signal, so your internet connection and phone connection can be used simultaneously.
If you choose Naked ADSL Broadband the service is delivered over the same physical copper phone lines, however you do not have an active landline phone service. This also means you will not have a separate bill for your landline phone service and will save on average $45 per month.
The ADSL Broadband service is available to selected ADSL enabled exchanges, and is subject to a line test to determine the line suitability and the minimum distance required to the nearest exchange. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to see if our services are available at your address

When sending data along an ADSL line the data is sent in bursts. Occasionally these bursts overlap other bursts, which cause a small loss of data. Interleaving is a process designed to prevent data errors when sending information from one place to another.
With interleaving switched on the data is split into smaller segments, so when these bursts overlap less data is lost. However sending data with interleaving on causes a slight delay.
If you choose to switch off interleaving the overall speed of your connection will not improve.
If you are not using the internet for online gaming or applications that require low latency (the time taken for data to travel from source to destination) then we would recommend that you select 'Interleaving on'. All ADSL Broadband connections are setup with ‘Interleaving on’ as default.
Yes, you can have interleaving switched off. This is primarily sought by gamers who wish to achieve better ping times. Please be aware that this is not suitable for all games. This option is only available on the maximum speed plans and is not available on the ADSL 1 256Kbps/128 Kbps plan.
