This can depend on the situation. What the salesman is trying to convince you to do is switch to a DSL line. DSL at that speed can be very quick, but remember DSL is a shared media network. This means that your company will be competing with other DSL users in the area for that 1.5Mb/512k bandwidth. At peak times of the day, with a lot of traffic you could possible see better response time from your 128k leased line, which is dedicated to your company, than the DSL line. You may want to consider upgrading to a 256k leased line instead of changing to DSL if your office?s response times are unacceptable.
