Send a message via AIM to DJ-CHRIS

V.90 Dial up models max out at 56k
ADSL models max out at 75000k ish

Basicly, one is Dial Up, one is High Speed.

loll. Seriously dude, I don't think any of us want to write a "10 page" report for you. The technological differences are straightforward (used frequency bands and such), the applications - it's like comparing Windows 3.1 to XP; one is totally superior to the other, cost - depends on who you get it from, but DSL is typically more expensive with good reason, etc. etc.
