Are There Any Limitations to CenturyLink DSL?

There are other faster kinds of broadband connections, but they usually are not as widely available as CenturyLink DSL and cost more. CenturyLink DSL is also sensitive to distance. When you request a page, that signal is sent to a central office to be identified. The further the central office is from your home, the longer it will take the signal travel from your home and back.
