Naked DSL

Naked DSL
A naked DSL (a.k.a. standalone or dry loop DSL) is a digital subscriber line (DSL) without a PSTN (analogue
telephony) service or the associated dial tone. In other words, only a standalone DSL Internet service is provided
on the local loop.

Comparison of regular and naked DSL


In regular DSL, a cable runs from the telephone switch to a piece of equipment called a Plain Old Telephone Service
(POTS) splitter. This splitter separates the DSL and voice bands. Thus the customer will have a dial tone, which
allows them to use the telephone line as a regular land line while they are using it to access the Internet on their
computer. A cable carrying both services runs from the splitter to the cable head, where it continues on to the
customer on outside plant. (See DSLAM.)
In naked DSL, there is no cable from the telephone switch to the POTS splitter. Thus there is no dial tone on the line.
However, the customer could still use the line for regular telephone service through Voice over Internet Protocol
(VoIP) or a Competitive Local Exchange Carrier (CLEC) instead of the Incumbent Local Exchange Carrier (ILEC).
Naked ADSL2 and ADSL2+ provisioned with "all digital mode" Annex I or Annex J can achieve additional 256
kbit/s of upstream data rate.

Availability
Naked DSL is available in several countries, if not nationwide then via at least one company: Austria, Australia,
Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, New Zealand,
Norway, Philippines, Portugal, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the United States.[1]

Australia
Amnet was the first ISP in Australia to officially launch a naked DSL product live on 14 November 2007, followed
by iiNet a day later. Exetel released naked ADSL2 Services on 1 December 2007. Optus, Australia's second largest
telecommunications provider, announced on 2 Mar 2009 that it will also be providing naked DSL services. Other
providers include offer Naked DSL are listed at Updated List of Naked DSL ISPs that service Australia [2].
Many of the smaller players use Optus to deliver their Naked DSL services.

Canada
Since the CRTC ruling of 21 July 2003,[3] Naked DSL service has been made available in Canada. Bell Canada and
other incumbents typically charge an additional fee for dry loop DSL based on the "Band Rate" of the area (ranging
from Band A to Band GWikipedia:Citation needed) to consumers and smaller ISP's who use Bell's phone line.

Croatia
Several providers offer naked DSL, but as of late July 2012, Iskon Internet is the first one to offer naked DSL
nationwide on T-Hrvatski Telekom's existing infrastructure, by unsubscribing from T-Com's analog line and
providing telephony service over VoIP. However, due to T-HT's wholesale policy and prices, higher speeds would
be too expensive for end user, and DSL link still operates in Annex B.

Naked DSL

Denmark
Naked DSL is available from the majority of ISPs, as most ISPs have now converted to VoIP solutions. Having 2
different providers for both POTS and DSL is possible.

France
Several ISPs now offer Naked Unbundled DSL services, which are also called offres dgroupes. ISPs generally
supply their own DSL modem with an FXS (Foreign exchange station) port for a standard phone handset and a set
top box to provide television services.
The first ISP to offer Naked DSL was Free with their Freebox.Wikipedia:Citation needed

United Kingdom
Naked DSL service, excluding SDSL, is not available in the United Kingdom, but it is possible to get a POTS and
DSL from different service providers.Wikipedia:Citation needed. The incumbent network, BT, has claimed there is
not sufficient demand from ISPs to provide a Naked DSL service.[12][13] Virgin Media provides broadband services

Naked DSL
without the requirement for a telephone line in cabled areas only, but this is not naked DSL as the service is provided
via a coaxial cable from the street, rather that over a telephone line, active or otherwise.

United States
On March 25, 2005, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) ruled 3-2 against utilities commissions in
Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, and Louisiana, which wanted to force BellSouth to unbundle their DSL service from
their local phone service.[14][15] However, in that proceeding, as a compromise between the FCC Commissioners, the
FCC released a Notice of Inquiry requesting comment on the "competitive consequences when providers bundle
their legacy services with new services, or "tie" such services together"; that proceeding remains open before the
FCC.[16] Later that year, during merger proceedings, the FCC required Verizon and AT&T Inc. to offer naked-DSL
for a period of two years as conditions to mergers; those conditions have since expired.
AT&T Inc. now provides naked DSL throughout most of the country, and Qwest Communications provides it
voluntarily. Verizon Communications also provides it in some areas, although at a higher price than it charges
customers who bundle it with regular phone service.Wikipedia:Citation needed Speakeasy also provides this service.
For Missouri, Socket Telecom Holds a high rate of customers in the NDSL Range.
