Vodafone exceeds own upper broadband speed limit to hit 80Mbps

future research

Not surprising.

When FTTC was first being used it was advertised as up to 40Mb or 80Mb, but it was rare to get that actual speed, so I believe ofcom forced ISP to advertise it lower to increase the number of people getting the top speed. the tech never changed so if you are right on top of the cabinet and have a good new copper phone line, then real limit can still be 80Mb.
