Are download speeds relative to ISP deal


[link to this post]
 
Hi
Excuse me if I seem very naiive with this question.

Let's say I choose a 35Mb/sec fibre deal and actually get, for instance, 25Mb/sec due to copper distance from cab.

If I choose a 76Mb/sec deal do I still only get 25Mb/sec or am I likely to get around 50Mb/sec?

Thanks

With FTTC (VDSL) you would still only get 25Mb/sec.

But with real fibre to the premise, FTTP, you would get full speed regardless of distance.

Your first guess is correct IF thatís all your line can handle.

Do you have any stats from your router, attenuation, sync rates, SNR and the like ?

You would still only get 25 Mbps as that is the most your line could get due to distance from the fibre cabinet.
