Difference b/w dial up and DSL broadband.

The main difference the interviewer expects from you is that when using broadband a telephone call can be attended or made without loosing the internet connection(as both services voice and data are available on the same telephone line), however when using a dial up connection you can only use one service at a time, that is you can use the telephone or the internet but not both.

The other differences are the speed, dial up - 56 kbps, DSL broadband - from 128kbps to 8Mbps.
