According to Australian newspaper, The Sunday Morning Herald, Dr John Papandriopoulos from University of Melbourne developed a new algorithm capable of boosting DSL speed to 100 Mbps.
The algorithm Dr. Papandriopoulos developed aims to reduce the effect of cross-talk on ADSL line. "Many years ago people used to pick up the phone and make a phone call and you'd be able to hear a faint or distant telephone conversation taking place, and that's called cross-talk", he explained. " That is not an issue for voice calls these days but it becomes a problem when you're trying to wring more bandwidth out of these existing copper telephone wires [which power ADSL broadband connections]. This cross-talk in current day DSL networks effectively produces noise onto other lines, and this noise reduces the speed of your connection. "
