Is there a difference between DSL line and phone line?
Similarly one may ask, is a DSL line the same as a phone line?
DSL is a very high-speed connection that uses the same wires as a regular telephone line. You can leave your Internet connection open and still use the phone line for voice calls. DSL doesn't necessarily require new wiring; it can use the phone line you already have.
Beside above, how far can you run a DSL line? Maximum distance on the telephone is probably several miles. The DSL is going to depend on how far you are from the telephone company "central office" as DSL IS dicey after about 10,000 (it may be 20,000) feet if I remember correctly.
Similarly, does DSL come through phone line?
DSL is short for digital subscriber line, an internet technology that uses telephone lines to deliver internet service. It isn't dial-up—DSL uses an entirely different frequency than voice calls and doesn't tie up your phone line. Some ISPs reach the higher end of that range using hybrid fiber-optic and DSL networks.
Does phone line affect Internet speed?
This depends greatly on your DSL speed. While increasing your distance may not affect your speed per say, it can affect the modem's ability to sync properly with the DSLAM and can cause a lower sync rate, line, CV or HEC errors (either causing slower speeds or a bouncing circuit).
