ADSL support data upstream rate is 16 Kbps to 640 Kbps and data downstream rate is 1.5 to 9 Mbps. Normally ADSL and download and upload speed is averagely 10 time more than a normal dial up connection. Your DSL connection to the Internet will always on, there is not need to dial your ISP each time  to use internet and the main requirement for ADSL connection is modem.
