    RevK's rants: It's official, ADSL works over wet string

    It's official, ADSL works over wet string
    Broadband services are a wonderful innovation of our time, using multiple frequency bands (hence the name) to carry signals over wires (usually copper, sometimes aluminium). One of the key aspects of the technology is its ability to adapt to the length and characteristics of the line on which it is deployed.

    We have seen faults on broadband circuits that manifest as the system adapting to much lower speeds, this is a key factor as a service can work, but unusually slowly, over very bad lines.

    It has always been said that ADSL will work over a bit of wet string.

    Well one of our techies (AAISP - Home) took it upon himself to try it today at the office, and well done.
