DSL Moves to 100 mb/s

The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has just ratified a standard for DSL which should provide up to 100 mb/s upstream and downstream. This standard, called VDSL2 (Very-high-bit-rate Digital Subscriber Line 2), should run over existing equipment and should position DSL providers for more robust services such as VoIP and videoconferencing.

Just as current DSL customers normally get between 3-5 mb/s on a 10 mb/s line, subscribers to VDSL2 are expected to get around 25 mb/s.
