The Microsoft Network today started Digital Subscriber Line trials in the US in a bid to provide consumers with faster Internet access.
MSN has started its DSL pilot in Altlanta and Seattle. If successful it will quickly roll out to Chicago and San Diego for testing, confirmed a company spokesperson.
Digital Subscriber Lines use conventional telephone lines to send data at more than 1mpbs. Microsoft hopes to have DSL access in 20 cities in the US by the autumn. The software giant also plans to offer DSL subscribers a co-branded MSN portal that will debut this summer.
