& on ADSL I was lucky to get 1Mb (on a good day) as my whole line length was/is recorded as 5283m (which does appear quite realistic).
My distance from the cab has been verbally reported as 820m, 900m, 1000m & 1100m by visiting BT engineers.
Those couple of hundred metres (measured electronically with JDSU meters) make such a difference to a FTTC connection.
If I knew the real distance, I/we might have some idea whether my connection was actually performing as it should be.
I know it isn't, but can't prove it (yet).
With a bit of luck, this Thursday's visiting engineer will pinpoint the "fault" & fix it once & for all.
My DS sync speed currently varies between 23Mb & almost 30Mb (23.67Mb for the last 6 days or so).
Back in June (original 8c profile) I enjoyed actual downloads at up to 33Mb, suggesting a sync speed of around 35Mb. (I had no access to any stats back then).
In theory, it should be even better on the 17a profile.
Your post that mentions JDSU meters appeared just as I originally sent this response.
