I know you are quite knowledgeable, so you must be not feeling up to scratch
That is just gibberish as a post and rubbish with respect to fact. That is not at all like you are normally.
For starters, on any ADSLx connection, BT Wholesale or LLU, there are overheads of typically 13% or a bit more taken from the sync before obtaining the maximum transfer speed, those being made up of the TCP/IP packaging within the internet and the ATM splitting up of those packets between the DSLAM/MSAN and the user modem.
FTTP is a little different in that there are no ATM overheads. Just TCP/IP.
Or, in fewer words, "my sync was my download speed and vice-versa"
The best I ever saw was O2/Be LLU where the transfer speed could be as high as 84% of sync.
