A version of ADSL (see DSL) that delivers 1.5 Mbps downstream and 640 kbps upstream and is specifically tailored for the consumer market segment. G.lite reduces the need for phone companies to send out a representative to complete an on-site installation by decreasing the need for new wiring and for a special signal "splitter" that separates voice and data at the user's home. G.lite delivers "always-on" Internet access at high speeds using existing wiring and allowing the concurrent use of normal telephone service.
An International Telecommunication Union (ITU) specification (ITU G.992.2) for a reduced-speed, splitterless version of asymmetric digital subscriber line (see ADSL).
G.Lite is the informal name of what is expected to be the standard way to install ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) service. Also known as Universal ADSL, G.Lite makes it possible to have Internet connections to home and business computers at up to 1.5 Mbps (millions of bits per second) over regular phone lines.
