If you mean exchange... about 3 KM. I get 5mbps most of the time anyway.

Seems to be capacity issues.

Ya we pay for ADSL2+ "up to 24mbit". This has become more frqeuent ever since my ISP doubled its quotas

I know its "up to" 24mbit, I acknowledged that in my original post by stating I usually get around 5mbps, but I'm not even getting 1.5mbps which is the minimum guaranteed speed.

In Greece the same situation: up to 24mbits... I get 14mbits at ~1-1.5km away from the exchange.
(I know how it is in Greek, but I didn't know how it is in English.)

My ISP is Crapsh*t Whorehouse / AOL (Officially known as Carphone Warehouse Broadband Services)

You can tell this won't go well.

It's alright, but it's slow sometimes. Sometimes it will just halt for a few seconds then jump back into life, but I suspect the routers are to blame.

Its not false advertising, its more like false hope... Most people just don't understand the way it works.

Learn how ADSL works then come back with your claims of false advertising.
