ok can anyone here tell me what this is about: Telecom will have to perform some checks to ensure the connection speed meets Telecom's minimum requirements.  so whats the minimum requirements and maybe they should be revised towards a better spec to compensate for those of us who don't quite reside in an exchanges backyard say like 3.5kms or further away should be on a dslam that has a higher signal output along with modem/routers that output at an higher signal (sorta like when you use an masthead amplifier for a weak TV signal)
