DSL Internet Providers By Zip Code #adsl #providers


DSL Internet Providers By Zip Code

Although typically viewed as a secondary choice to broadband cable, DSL providers have improved a lot in recent years. All of the major U.S. DSL companies now offer some form of upgraded high speed Internet connection – either ADSL2+, VDSL2 or fiber optics.

Some DSL providers are even upgrading their copper lines with bonded ADSL2+ or bonded VDSL2. This allows them to double the download and upload speeds of their DSL lines.

However, the most exciting improvement is the transition to fiber optic lines. These modern broadband connections – AT T U-Verse. Verizon FiOS, Frontier FiOS, and CenturyLink Prism – are pushing maximum download speeds from between 50 Mbps up to 1 Gbps.

Finally, if you live in the AT T service area, another big change is that AT T acquired DIRECTV in 2015. So, now you can easily bundle satellite TV with either AT T U-verse or DSL.

Reviews Of Major DSL Internet Providers By Zip Code

Most telecom companies are now split between copper and fiber optic lines. Your choice between DSL fiber depends upon which type of line your home has.

The majority of American households are serviced by 5 major DSL providers that handle about 98% of all residential DSL service within the United States.

AT T U-Verse DSL – In 2007, AT T merged with BellSouth to become the largest Internet service provider in America. That title was lost to XFINITY in 2010, and then they recently lost 2nd place to Charter in 2016. Still, AT T remains the largest DSL provider by far, with close to 16 million customers. Most of their urban service areas have U-verse fiber connections to some degree, but many rural areas still have AT T DSL with speeds up to 6 Mbps.

CenturyLink – Mergers have been the name of the game in the telecom industry as of late, and nowhere is this more evident then with the creation of CenturyLink. First, the company known as CenturyTel merged with Embarq, and then in 2011, it has also merged with Qwest to finally become CenturyLink. The company serves just over 6 million subscribers. For the greater portion of their customers, the maximum download speed is up to 10 Mbps. However, in areas where they’ve installed fiber optics, customers can get up to 100 Mbps downstream.

Frontier – Rural Americans hoping for broadband in their area might want to look to Frontier. The company have acquired millions of customers from Verizon in 17 states. Frontier is now the largest provider of rural DSL Internet connections in the country. Since many of the areas where they took over from Verizon have FiOS, they are also a big player in fiber. Also, they took over all landlines from AT T in Connecticut, which is a mix of DSL and U-verse, so which type of service Frontier can offer you depends upon exactly where you live.

Windstream – The fifth remaining major DSL provider is Windstream. They currently have a little over 1 million active accounts across 18 states. The company was created in 2006 as a spin-off from Alltel, and since that time they have acquired at least 5 other small telecoms to reach their current size. Windstream offers their customers Internet plans with maximum speeds of up to 12 Mbps downstream and even faster fiber connections in some limited areas.

Vigor 130 ADSL/VDSL Modem

  • ADSL VDSL (FTTC/BT Infinity) Ethernet Modem
  • BT SIN 498 MCT Approved
  • Bridge (pass) a single IP address or a whole public subnet
  • Ideal Partner device for DrayTek dual-WAN products
    or any other vendor’s Ethernet WAN firewall
  • IPv6 and IPv4 Compatible
  • Ethernet Connection for client device (router, PC etc.)
  • Ideal for Apple™ Airport devices
  • ADSL VDSL Parameters pre-set for UK ISPs (adjustable)
  • Support for MTU1508 (Jumbo Frames)
  • VDSL Vectoring
  • PPPoA/PPPoE Bridging compatible with ISPs running IPv6
  • Normally no setup/configuration of the Vigor 130 required
  • Line Stats now displayed in Vigor router web interface
  • Product Videos – New


The DrayTek Vigor 130 is an ADSL and VDSL modem with an Ethernet connection; it is not a router but a true ADSL/VDSL Ethernet Modem (bridge). The Vigor 130 provides compatibility with all current UK VDSL/ADSL technologies; it has been extensively tested and tuned to provide a robust and reliable DSL connection.

By providing a PPPoE bridge, the connected device (firewall, router or PC) can log into the Internet (your ISP) directly and have full control over the Internet connection – that makes the Vigor 130 a unique product. You can connect any device to the Vigor 130 which has a PPPoE client facility, which includes PCs, most Ethernet-WAN routers and the Apple Airport/Time Capsule™ products.

Other Ethernet ‘modems’ may use workarounds to get a public IP address ‘through’ to your secondary device/client, requiring non-standard operation and complicated dual-stage setup (modem logs in, router routes) but the Vigor 130 provides the secondary device with a real routed IP connection and the ability to fully manage the connection, making setup easy. In most cases, the Vigor 130 needs no setup or configuration – just plug it in and set up your PC or router. All login/ISP details are entered on the connected client device, not the Vigor 130. The actual connection to your ISP is still PPPoA or PPPoE (depending on your ISP and line type).

This transparent bridging method also differs from using a normal ADSL/VDSL router which logs in itself and then uses NAT or multiple public IP addresses to create an onward client connection for your secondary device; that is not IP Address thrifty and can introduce secondary NAT compromises or interference with various protocols/traffic. With the Vigor 130 bridge/modem, you get a true single public IP address (or multiple, if you have them) straight through to your firewall/router.

Line Info in Vigor Router Interface

When connected to a Vigor router (2860, 2925 series and 2830n v2), DSL line information is now displayed in the router’s own web interface, alongside any built-in DSL interface stats. In the example below, WAN1 is a Vigor2860’s built-in modem but WAN2 is a connected Vigor 130:
