Techopedia explains ISDN Digital Subscriber Line (IDSL)
IDSL is basically a cross between xDSL and ISDN. Transfer rates are slightly higher than ISDN (144 kbps vs 128 kbps), but much slower than standard DSL connections. In addition, a major benefit of switching to IDSL from ISDN is the always-on connection.
