I am 0.8 miles (1200 meters) from the green cabinet.
The BT guys equipment sync'd at 40MB, no idea what the modem syncs at as you dont get access to it.
Speedtest shows ~ 30MB. http://www.speedtest.net/result/1040738829.png
Coming from Xilo ADSL2 @ 6MB, this is a huge improvement, thanks Xilo!
May the ping be with you ....
