Are you on FttC? Me too! Thanks to FttC, my DSL-connection jumped from ADSL's 10 Mbps (over 4+ km cupper) to VDSL's 62 Mbps (over 0,4 km cupper), which is capped by my 'plan' to 42 Mbps. Which is great.
Do you know how your FttC (in the UK, right?) is deployed? Here in the Netherlands, KPN lays fiber to remote street cabinets, puts a DSLAM in them, and provides VDSL from there to the households. KPN especially selects the street cabinets that 1) are remote and thus offer low ADSL-speed and
2) have access to a lot of households (500+).
