at much higher prices of course.I would like to know where the speed is controlled from, is it at the TelCo
or is it in the modem.

     In response to your question your bandwith is controlled from the CO(central Office).  I know wouldn't it be nice if we could hit some dip's and instantly get that 7mb connection we've wanted for years :-)

     Most often time this can be done at the central office,  however depending how far away you are from the CO they might need to run a different version of DSL to get the rates you need.  Most often times if you are using adsl to get higher connection speeds you need to be within 1-1.2 miles of the CO.
