deficiencies found in traditional analog phones lines. These
could result in slow connection speeds and unexplained disconnects
for Internet users regardless of the provider they used."

connections thanks to the clarity of the signal in the digital
modems. Because it is a digital service, customers may also

at the higher speeds for the same monthly fee. Dial-up 128Kbps
ISDN access is also available for an additional charge.
