Integrated Digital Services Network (ISDN)

Business / Internet Marketing / Integrated Digital Services Network (ISDN): ISDN lines are high-speed dial-up connections to the Internet. That's good. What's bad is that their cost and availability is determined by local telephone companies, which means in some places they are available, in other places not: and sometimes they're cheap, and at other times wildly expensive. It is a lot of commotion for a connection roughly four times faster -- 128,000 bits per second -- than a normal phone line. (The joke among communications experts is that ISDN stands for 'It Still Does Nothing.') Wait for fiber optic lines which will be thousands of times faster -- that's the future.
