 Voltage for DSL Line
We have an unusual DSL circuit from a CLEC in that there is NO DIAL TONE present on this working DSL line (dedicated DSL, no analog/voice service). The problem is that we're suffering from frequent dropouts of data service. I thought I'd look at voltage across the line to see if it drops at the same time, but I don't see the 24-48V I expected to find on the line. What voltage *should* be present on this type of DSL service?

Dear Jim,


I do not have access to that information. I tried searching the web for that info but without true success. You may need to talk to someone in the tech group at your CLEC.
