Default ADSL Broadband Internet service



The national telecom company in India has started offering a broadband
Internet service which has the following features:

1) use of existing telephone lines for connecting the customer

2) use of ADSL routers (cum Modems?) of model SmartAX MT880 produced
by Huawei from China

3) use of username and password as in any ADSL Internet service. 4)
PPPoE connection using a DSL modem/router which is connected to a LAN
card on the PC

The dial-Up Internet services using the underground telephone lines do
get badly affected by road digging, moisture and water seepage during
monsonn - sometimes very badly because of background noise, affect the
speed and cause frequent disconnections. In such a situation, what kind
of uptime, speed and disconnection problems should a user be prepared
for with the proposed broadband Internet using telephone lines?

You can't tell.
It's going to vary user by user.
And ADSL does not respond the same to faults as voice, some will be
better, some worse.

Unless the telco provides some sort of uptime guarantee, then you're
pretty much in the same boat as people everywhere, "if it works, it works".

It all depends on how much resources they intend to put into maintaining
ADSL lines.
