Slide Background

The Internet market has been profoundly changed by consumer spending habits and the arrival of technologies allowing the sharing of information at high speed. Internet connections have freed themselves from traditional modems and you can now enjoy extremely fast connection speeds when you surf the web. However, the diversity of offers that are on the market are not all easy to understand and the differences in price of a subscription to another forcing the consumer to ask several questions before deciding on which option it is best.


ADSL

ADSL, the standard market supply ADSL to send and receive digital data (either calls, computer records or television) at higher frequencies than those used for communications traditional telephone via the telephone line. In the end, all the information (tv, telephone or internet) that pass through the telephone line coming into the "box", box you provides the operator when you subscribe to an offer of this type.


Eligibility and ADSL unbundling

Before enjoying a DSL connection, you can first perform an eligibility test your line to check the type of broadband that you can expect.  This test allows you to measure the academic quality of your Internet connection. Once this test done, you will know the unbundling area of your home. There are two types of unbundling area: unbundled areas and non-unbundled areas:

  • The unbundled zones are geographic areas in which France Telecom and mobile operators share the same network coverage - in these areas, customers can access the unbundling.
  • The non-unbundled areas are often remote and isolated regions. These areas are covered only by France Telecom, as other networks have not enough telephone equipment at those locations.

Characteristics of different types of unbundling

If you live in an unbundled area, there are two types of unbundling:

  • The partial unbundling means you are free to choose your Internet service provider based offers that are available, but you have to stay at France Telecom for your telephone line.
  • Full unbundling allows you to switch all of your phone service and internet in one of the operators on the market. It is necessary that you keep your phone service at France Telecom. In general, the total unbundling offers access to interesting options like internet telephony or digital television.

What offer ADSL to choose his housing?
