      At that distance she should get 16Mb even allowing for a longer route, but until the line is tested no one can be 100% sure.

      probably yes, the new connections are live on DLM (although it's only about 40,000 - it'll say in her welcome letter)

      Is you Auntie on Virgin Cable or ADSL?

      If she is on ADSL you could post her Attenuation and we could give you a better guestimate
