      Put your number and postcode in then click on check

      Then click on BT Adsl and it will give you a rough estimate.

      And at that sort of distance, depending on the route you actual line takes you will be looking at getting around 4.5meg downstream on adsl1 or around 6-8meg on adsl2+ ish. All depends on your line quality

      In case thats what you were thinking.....
