DSL in Germany: 75% of advertised speed is actually to

infografik 1226 tatsaechlich erreichte dsl geschwindigkeit n DSL in Deutschland: 75% der beworbenen Geschwindigkeit kommt tatsächlich an

The EU Commission has published interesting numbers to the speed of DSL connections. And is quite surprising since Germany in international comparison is not so bad. It is aimed as much actually advertised and ultimately acquired by the customer by the provider of the DSL connection speed actually depends also on the box of the customer. And in Germany an average of 75 percent of advertised speed can then be actually used.

Is that a realistic value? If I had to report from my home town, probably well in most people actually do not lie 75 percent of the booked rate, on the contrary. On the other hand, the only true mostly to peripheral regions where the paths from the household to the next node are usually very long, too long in the end. High losses are then the result, so the speed is artificially lowered in order to avoid errors in the transmission.

On the other hand, can distort the very values ​​today. If DSL provider as 6000 offer, in principle, not less is more, but actually only get 4000, then the average customer is certainly still happy with it but just receives only 66 percent of the posted speed.
