This doesn't look to difficult to translate from German, but what are the procedures for translation and linking back to the original? to ensure readers know it was a German article? I'm not sure American techies call this HDSL... or that name was depricated for Fast DSL. Justin 05:05, 21 June 2006 (UTC)

I'm moving this note here as it's a more appropriate place for it: --Gnewf 03:10, 22 June 2006 (UTC)

Work in progress, sentence-by-sentence translation of German HDSL. Justin 06:38, 21 June 2006 (UTC)

first translation complete. Justin 05:17, 22 June 2006 (UTC)

If you have questions concerning HDSL, ask User discussion:Fink. I just updated the german article. My best greetings to Raleigh, i have been there in Research Triangle Park a couple of years ago. 11:55, 25 August 2006 (UTC)

CarlosRibeiro 16:48, 21 October 2006 (UTC). Hi. I'm a network engineer, and I think I can help, although I will add some points of my own, backed upon my experience and also on some other (still unreferenced) sources. Check & tell me if you think it's ok.

Poorly written[edit]

I do not have any suggestions, but upon reading this, the article is poorly written compared to other articles I have read. The use of capital letters and Astrix's (in place of quotations?), mixed with very short sentences gives it a feel of poor writing style. Of course, I could not do better, but I see it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:40, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

Merge and improve?[edit]

The result of this discussion was to merge Conquerist (talk) 01:54, 27 December 2013 (UTC)

As per above comments and the cleanup notice, this still needs work. The topic could be historical by now, since much higher rates seem the modern baseline. So might need to be in past tense. Also, I suggested a merge from G.991.1 almost two years ago, which was removed today. That is a permastub that just says it is the number of the document that specifies this protocol. For most of the other DSLs like SHDSL, VDSL, VDSL2 etc. there is one merged article on both the protocol and its document. I do not see how a single document can be shown to meet Wikipedia notability standards. There are probably not any independent sources that only talk about the document number but not the protocol itself. So will do a bold merge if nobody objects, since there were no comments to the contrary in the two years the merge tag was on. W Nowicki (talk) 22:09, 23 June 2013 (UTC)

  • Support - I'd go ahead with the merge, no need for a separate article. Conquerist (talk) 18:21, 26 December 2013 (UTC)
