How fast is EarthLink High Speed DSL?
We believe in speed and choice. So we offer our DSL access in a wide range of speeds, from 768Kbps to 6Mbps. But not all speeds are available in all areas. Enter your information on our main DSL page to learn your speed options.

How much faster is EarthLink High Speed DSL than Dial-Up?
An EarthLink DSL connection can range from 13x to 140x faster than a typical 56K dial-up connection, depending on the DSL service level you choose. Here are specific comparisons for some of our most popular DSL Internet plans:

  • 1.5Mbps DSL . 25x faster than dial-up
  • 3.0Mbps DSL . 55x faster than dial-up
  • 6.0Mbps DSL . 100x faster than dial-up

What can I do with all that DSL speed?
With our DSL access you'll get much more done in much less time. You'll use your broadband DSL connection to do more things. You'll experience fewer headaches and frustrations. Bottom line: you'll have a lot more fun. For example:

With our fastest DSL connection (up to 6.0Mbps), you could download 48 digital photos in 1 minute. That would take you about 1 hr. 40 minutes using dial-up. Bet you could put that extra 1hr. 39 minutes to good use, couldn't you?

You'll get the same kind of time-saving benefit downloading music or software, doing online research or shopping, and more. You'll also have a much better experience watching online video and playing online games.

Will I connect to the Internet instantly?
Yes. EarthLink High Speed DSL gives you instant broadband speed with no dialing in, no waiting, no busy signals. It is always available for you at a moment's notice.

Can I access the Internet if I'm on the road?
Yes. All EarthLink High Speed plans come with free dial-up access (up to 20 hours per month) for you to use away from home. And EarthLink has thousands of toll-free local access numbers for you to use.

Can I use EarthLink DSL on all my home computers?
Yes, that is one of the big benefits you get with a high-speed DSL connection

Can I set up a home network?
The hardware EarthLink provides with the DSL service supports multiple computers and allows you to create a home network. You can share one high-speed connection on all your home computers, as well as share files, printers, and peripherals. And with the wifi connection that comes with EarthLink provided hardware, you can enjoy high-speed access as you move around your home using wireless enabled devices. Plus, our support experts can help you get your network set up properly and provide assistance whenever you need it.


Do I need to have home phone service to get EarthLink DSL?
In most locations, DSL service requires that you have an active home phone line. In locations where Verizon provides local phone service, we are able to offer what we call Freestanding DSL. This money-saving option gives you broadband Internet access without an active phone line. Enter your address and phone number on the main DSL or Internet Access page of this site to see your DSL availability options.

Note: All EarthLink High Speed services come with FREE Dial-Up service (typically to use away from home). You would need a phone line to connect using this free dial-up service.

Can I talk on the phone and use DSL service at the same time?
Yes, that is no problem. Surf and talk all you like. There is no need to add an additional phone line for EarthLink DSL high-speed Internet service. And, unlike with Dial-Up, you will not experience any busy signals on your phone line when you are online with your DSL connection.

Is my monthly phone service included in the EarthLink DSL Internet charges?
No. Your DSL connection will use your existing phone line, but phone service will still be provided by your phone company. Your regular monthly telephone service charges are not included in EarthLink DSL service. Please read the EarthLink Internet Service Agreement located at for complete details.

What should I do if I want to change local or long-distance phone companies?
Please give EarthLink a call at 1-866-226-0572 in order to avoid any interruption to your service. Switching your local or long-distance service could permanently disconnect your EarthLink DSL, depending on who EarthLink's DSL vendor partner is in your area.

If you will be changing your phone number when you move, please go to and search for High Speed relocation support information.

What should I do if I want to change the phone number my DSL is installed on?
If you want to change your DSL phone number, please contact us first. We will need to place a new order for you in order to provide DSL service on your new phone number.


What are the minimum computer requirements for High Speed DSL?
The minimum hardware requirement is that your primary computer must have a Network Interface Card (NIC) also known as an Ethernet card, which is standard on most computers.
