      2KM away from my exchange - what speeds should I expect?

      Thread title says it all. What speeds are common from a line 2KM away from the exchange?

      If I find out that I can receive around 8Meg, I might have to get a BT engineer out to see if my line is damaged. Or an electrican. At the moment I only get around 1.5-2meg.

      Its the line att rather than the distance thats important, you may be 2km away from the exchange, but the line may well be twice that length or more. Post router stats which will allow people to make an informed judgement.

      Have a read of this mate.

      ***

      Is the 2KM the actual line length or as the crow flies?

      If the line length is 2KM them you should see speeds of upto 16MB
