Symmetric digital subscriber line (SDSL) refers to digital subscriber line (DSL) technologies, that is, technologies for transmission of digital data over the copper wires of the telephone network where the bandwidth in the downstream direction, from the network to the subscriber, is identical to the bandwidth in the upstream direction, from the subscriber to the network. This symmetric bandwidth can be considered to be the opposite of the asymmetric bandwidth offered by asymmetric digital subscriber line ADSL technologies, where the upstream bandwidth is lower than the downstream bandwidth. SDSL is generally marketed at business customers, while ADSL is marketed at private as well as business customers. Wikipedia
