    No it isn't.

    ADSL2 is up to 24mb, Cable here is 30mb+

    Perhaps under certain conditions.

    Application is a different story.

    My guess is that optus are running 'capped' cable, not uncapped like my local provider.
    It would seem for most people adsl2 is a better choice for most with both telstra and optus limiting the speed on their cable services.

    Most operators have ADSL2+ speeds advertised at higher rates than cable speeds...

    Its why i'm not on a cable connection...

    I wouldn't mind seeing speed comparisons between cable and adsl2 on each provider though, I'd place money on cable reaching better speeds than the adsl speeds regardless of the advertised rates. There's a lot more in between the ISP and user on adsl than ISP to user on cable to slow the connection.

    Just for comparitive sake, MY provider: http://bc.whirlpool.net.au/isp.cfm/N...band/13-4.html

    I do agree with that.

    Most don't realise that ADSL2+ speed degrades with line distance. For me the 24 Mb/s speed is actually something like 5Mb/s...

    You don't have a chance at getting 20mb/s unless your living next to your exchange...

    ATM, the exchange my ISP uses is like 15-20Km/s away...

    Something else that many people don't know is that ADSL1 can handle something around 8mb/s, ISP's cap the speed... presumably to avoid the situation you get with ADSl2+ where line distance equates to less speed.

    l don't know enough about adsl 2 - l know that cable craps on adsl and what l've heard from people is that cable is faster than adsl 2 (and l also heard that from Telstra when l was enquiring about the cost of cable , adsl and adsl 2 a fair while ago, and l asked which is the fastest between cable and adsl 2 and she said cable is faster?)

    Finallllllly! I've been unshaped!
    Spoiler! highlight to see
    I've been unshaped since I had a baby


    I've also upgraded to the next package, so I hopefully won't ever be shaped again.... (with my internet speed )

    But why do I get 2 way different speed test results??

    From Broadbandguide.com.au

    Download Speed : 2479 kbps (309.9 KB/sec transfer rate)
    Upload Speed : 632 kbps (79 KB/sec transfer rate)


    And


    And I'm assuming the distance is supposedly the distance from the server, exchange, whatever?
    Because I'm only less than 5 k's from the exchange. As far as I was led to believe when I signed up....

    Differing locations of the server...

    Some internet pipelines are as low as 2 Mb/s

    How you internet determines its speed is dependant on the quality of the lines between you and the computer your accessing and the line distance between both computers.

    Some old phone lines can't handle high speed connections... so your connection goes slower on them...

    There's a fibre optic line between Australia and the US (it seems), Downloading information from a computer in the US is faster then downloading from one in china even though the US is further away, because the line quality is much higher. (pure speculation, but you get the idea)
