Recently I came to talk with a network guy about ADSL. He said that an ADSL of 2 Mbit/s means 2 Mbit/s from my modem to the ISP, not 2 Mbit/s from the modem to the internet. That means the speed of the line actually depends on how well the ISP can let me go to the internet.
Is that true? Is that the kind of speed that being advertised?
