The "up to" caveat is because DSL speeds are a function of the condition and layout of the physical cable plant, the cable miles between your location and the central office ord repeater station, and the laws of physics governing electrical transmission. The closer you are to the CO or repeater in cable miles the faster your DSL will be and vice-versa. Since more and more users are abandoning landline phone service in favor of cell phones, don't look for your telco to spend much money on improving the physical plant either.
