How fast is fibre broadband?

FTTC broadband comes in two variants which offer a downstream line speed of 80meg or 40meg, but the actual maximum speed of the service will be slightly lower than this at around 78 / 39Mbps. Different upstream speeds are available at either 2Mbps or 10Mbps on the 40meg variant, and 20meg up on the 80meg.
