DSL by Verizon is different from dial up. It’s high speed internet that’s faster and much more reliable. The signal runs through a wireless router so you can set up your own home Wi-Fi network. And DSL service from Verizon doesn’t tie up your phone line like dial up internet.

We offer two speed tiers of DSL service in the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area: High Speed Internet and High Speed Internet Enhanced. High Speed Internet lets you surf, shop and email for a great value.

What is DSL?

A 24/7 connection to the internet. Way faster than dial up internet.

Short for “digital subscriber line,” DSL is a type of technology used for connecting homes and businesses to the internet over a traditional telephone network. In other words, Verizon's DSL provides you with a high-speed internet connection through your existing phone line. But DSL is not dial up.

How is DSL different from dial up internet?

For starters, our DSL service provides you with a dedicated broadband connection to the internet that offers greater bandwidth capacity than dial up. That makes it much faster and far more reliable than traditional dial up internet. In fact, Verizon’s DSL features 99.9% network reliability.

Plus, unlike dial up, DSL lets you use the phone and internet at the same time. That means you won’t face the inconvenience of tying up your phone or fax line while you’re connected to the internet, a hassle that customers searching for internet services in the Wyoming Valley shouldn’t have to deal with.

Verizon's DSL delivers the broadband speed you need. It's a great choice for reliable home internet service in Scranton and Wilkes-Barre.

How is DSL different from cable?

A DSL connection gives you a dedicated internet access line from our central office to your home. It’s a broadband internet connection that’s all yours. So, unlike cable internet, with DSL you’re not sharing your broadband connection with other customers on your street.

Can I use Wi-Fi with DSL?

Yes, with a wireless router installed, you can use your DSL connection to set up your own home wireless network. Connect multiple Wi-Fi enabled devices to the internet using Wi-Fi – computers, tablets, smartphones, gaming devices and more.

What do I need to get started with Verizon DSL?

You’ll need a broadband router and phone service from Verizon. That’s about it. If you purchase a wireless router from Verizon, you’ll be provided with firewall protection and a fast, reliable wired and wireless connection to multiple computers. Setting up DSL service is easy. Just follow the Instruction Guide that will come with your self-installation kit.
