Recommended ADSL Speeds?

The maximum download speed reachable by ADSL 2+ is dependant on the distance the end user's modem is located from the DSLAM.

Example: 

  • 25.0 Mbit/s @ 0.3 Km 
  • 24.0 Mbit/s @ 0.6 Km 
  • 23.0 Mbit/s @ 0.9 Km
  • 22.0 Mbit/s @ 1.2 Km 
  • 21.0 Mbit/s @ 1.5 Km 
  • 19.0 Mbit/s @ 1.8 Km 
  • 16.0 Mbit/s @ 2.1 Km 
  • 8.0  Mbit/s @ 3,0 Km 
  • 3.0  Mbit/s @ 4.5 Km 
  • 1.5   Mbit/s @ 5.2 Km

If you are located any further then 5.5 Km from a DSLAM your ISP should not be selling a service, (BUT THERE ARE EXCEPTIONS)

Real download speeds are based on cable size, from the Exchange to the end users premises. 

Example: 

A distance of 9.0 Km with a cable size made up of different cable gauge e.g. 80% @0.90 10% @ 0.64 and 10% @0.40,  you could expect to see speed between 4.0 Meg to 8.0 Meg, but it is only found in Rural/outlying Metro areas of Australia.  This is because the signal to travel a lot further distances and therefore require a larger surface area to achieve this.  In all Metropolitan ares the majority of the cable gauge is only 0.40 and you couldn't achieve the same results over distance.
