Some time ago I upgraded my cable internet access for higher speed, and that required a swap out of cable modems to accommodate the different technology.

My question is, does the same thing apply for DSL?  For example, upgrading ones service from say DSL through ADSL and its iterations to the highest available, do any of those upgrades require a newer or different type of modem?

Yes, though these days it's usually the upgrade from ADSL to VDSL that requires a new modem- Most modern ADSL modems support all ADSL flavours.

Although in saying that, modems supporting VDSL will usually support ADSL as well. So if you have a newish modem on ADSL, check if it supports VDSL before buying another.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.
