OK just an easy question for u boffins

I am a complete eejit with all the technical hooha so distance from exchange has a direct link as to what speed u are likely to get right? those further away getting lower speeds than those on the door step?

Right I am 430m from my exchange I think I remember reading so how much degredation woul dthat have on the possibility of me attaining 8MB/s?

Thanks a lot

What matters is not distance from the exchange, but your line statistics - signal to noise ratio and attenuation.
You may be able to get these from your router or modem - Google on the model number, or look at the handbook to find out how.

However, typically, the further you are from the exchange, the worse your line stats... so in part you are correct.
