I’m getting ADSL2+ connected this month, can’t wait.
The following graph is a list of the speeds you can expect for various connections related to your physical (as the kitty runs along the road rather than as the crow flies) distance from the exchange. I’m only 500m from my exchange so should be near the top level for speed, presently I’m only getting 0.54 MBPS download speed so it could be a welcome visit to the first world (almost) in terms of internet connectivity. There is only a 20 Gig D/L limit but I will take what I can get for the moment, hopefully one day Australia can take our place in the 21st century and such services will arrive faster.
I’m not quite sure what it will mean in practical terms but I will soon see.
