Normally VDSL is quoted as '55Mbps'...

They also have a nice ADSL article :-)

I *think* that "xDSL" standards by definition are single pair, versus
the two-pair (4-wire) of 10/100/1000-BaseT.  BTW: 100-BaseT on cat-5e
cable will deliver 100Mpbs full-duplex over 300m or more... Which makes
you wonder why Transact did what they did.
