What do you need to know about ADSL?

ADSL stands for Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line, and is also known as fixed-line broadband.

 

ADSL is one of the most popular, fast, stable, and affordable internet connections available in South Africa, and we highly recommend ADSL services for all your connectivity needs.

In order to make use of ADSL, you must have the following

A computer capable of using ADSL. Your computer must have a network adapter with an ethernet port, and must be running Windows XP or later (or an equivalent OS).

A DSL modem/router. If you have a DSL modem, you should be able to use it with Imaginet's services, and you will not need to purchase a new one. We can simply help you reconfigure your existing modem over the phone. If you do not have a modem, Imaginet can provide one for you.

An active post-paid Telkom phone line. You must have a phone line in order to use ADSL, and your normal phone line rental remains payable to Telkom, even if you never make phone calls, and even if you pay your DSL line rental to Imaginet.

A DSL line. Telkom can install DSL on an active Telkom phone line. If you don't have a DSL line, Imaginet can have one installed for you via Telkom, or you can contact Telkom yourself on 10210 and order the installation of ADSL. If Imaginet installs your line, you will pay us your monthly DSL rental. If Telkom installs the DSL, you will pay them.

Once you have this in place you need to choose a package from Imaginet to use on your DSL line for connectivity. Check out our list of options on : A DSL line. Telkom can install DSL on an active Telkom phone line. If you don't have a DSL line, Imaginet can have one installed for you via Telkom, or you can contact Telkom yourself on 10210 and order the installation of ADSL. If Imaginet installs your line, you will pay us your monthly DSL rental. If Telkom installs the DSL, you will pay them.

Once you have your DSL line you will need to choose a package from Imaginet for your connectivity. Please take a look at the many offerings for you online.
