FAQ Broadband DSL

DSL stands for Digital Subscriber Line. It is a technology that brings 24x7 high bandwidth internet access (often called “broadband”) into businesses and homes over copper telephone lines. PNCC also offers options for connectivity via VDSL and fiber, please contact PNCC Sales at 488-9600 for more information.

Although DSL service is provided over standard copper telephone lines, it requires special high-speed modems, one at the customer's premises and one at the provider.

A point to note in DSL technology is that there is a trade-off between speed and distance. That is, the more the distance between your premises and those of the service provider, the lower the speed you’re likely to get. So, DSL works best if you’re closer to the premises of your service provider.

PNCC offers a variety of DSL subscriptions suitable for single computers and computer networks. For rates and more information, please contact Customer Service at 488-9000 or Sales at 488-9600.

DSL service is available in most areas of all states from Kayangel to Angaur Babeldaob states. If you have a request for DSL service in your area which is not covered, please contact Customer Service at 488-9000 or Sales at 488-9600.

IP stands for Internet Protocol. An IP address serves to identify a computer or any other networked device on a network, thus making communication and exchange of information between computers possible. An IP address is formatted as 4 sets of numbers, each having a value between 0 and 255, separated by dots.
IP address example:
216.55.128.4

TCPIP stands for Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol, which is a set of networking protocols or language that allows two or more computers to communicate. It has now been widely adopted as a networking standard. Internet requires TCP/IP to work.

  • 3. After 5 minutes, plug the modem back in or press power button to turn it back on.
