hey expert do you know sync is not the same as real bandwidth. Its like your computer sync with a cable modem at 100mbs but you don' that 100 due to you might only subscribe to 10. They sync higher then the bandwidth that is available. As att said bonded copper would bump it to 50 to 80mbs available.

No, you're wrong about the technology. The reason why it's called sync is because it's short for synchronize. The modem synchronizes with the DSLAM and the bitrate is set during the negotiation based upon port settings and available bandwidth. There's only a handful of set profiles for sync rates.

Have you ever actually touched a VDSL modem?
