Are you saying that DSL and ADSL in and of itself is only capable of
half duplex? It's not just a pipe between the router and the central
office? You can only be uploading or downloading at a given time? Or are
you saying that the router itself, like a hub, is half duplex?

If I have a 256 kbps fractional T-1, is that half or full duplex?

Is cable half or full duplex?
