I am using an adsl broadband connection. my current plan offers me a speed of 2 Mbps.
I am trying to get my plan upgraded to 4 mbps, however my ISP states they are unable to offer greater than 2 mbps stating 'distance' issues. They do offer upto 8 mbps to connections closer to their unit.
However, recently I checked attainable rate on my router admin page, which is far higher than 4 mbps.
is attainable rate a sole factor in determining the speed my line is capable of? Can i use this fact to counter my ISP's claim that my line doesn't support greater than 2 mbps?
