I had the bonded phone line hookup like you did for a few months.
It started with supposedly high speed that wasn't.
Their excuse was currently upgrading lines.
2 years of hearing that.
so we upgraded with frontier.
Up to 18mbs download!
The best I ever got was maybe 3mbs but I was charged for the potential 18mbs.
The tech said I was to far out on the line to get that fast... by by frontier...
I switched to cable dsl and have 24mbs now.
Until everything is upgraded we will be pinched for speed.

You set a clockrate for the line that you pay for
So when they enable the connection to your router there is an option on the router for them to set the clockrate for that interface
As an example
Now I'm not 100% sure they are using Cisco products but I'm pretty Damn sure they are
To configure the clock rate for the hardware connections on serial interfaces such as network interface modules (NIMs) and interface processors to an acceptable bit rate, use the clock rate command in interface configuration mode. To remove the clock rate if you change the interface from a DCE to a DTE device, use the no form of this command. Using the no form of this command on a DCE interface sets the clock rate to the hardware-dependent default value.

You have ‘tech’s’ come out to your house, using ‘their credentials’ on your router... you mean admin admin..
do you even have an IT background? Do you know anything about ‘noise’ caused on the copper line the closer you are to the exchange?
I can shoot so many holes in everything you said.
I’m pretty confident the transfers happened over a local usb 2.0 device and 2.0 port, or 3.0 device over a 2.0 port.
Either or. I’m concerned though that you think it was remote hackers, as someone pointed out in an earlier thread, when one is hacking remotely, you do your best to keep quiet. Bumping up a DSL line and using most of, if not all the bandwidth would cause someone to notice, it would also be logged.
Are you a developer/programmer?
Also- the DNC probably has a 1000mbps fibre line. It was 2016 not 2000

In an ideal world, if everything were equal, and everyone had the exact same equipment and means to access broadband, I may agree. But we're not, and everyone has different problems that occur to hinder their speeds. Where I live, we still have copper wire to the exchanges. Or, now that we've been forced onto the NBN (Lose landline phones and all ability to contact anyone with a normal home phone, OR get the NBN and VOIP) we are copper to the node, which is the fibre to the exchange. On ADSL2+ I was stuck at 12Mbps down, 1Mbps up. 2.6km from the exchange, the line noise and snr was bad. I could have gotten up to 20Mbps, but alas, no. Now on NBN, I get 50Mbps down, 20Mbps up.
My point is, there are too many factors for it to be so, I believe. Everyone has different scenarios that affect this ability. Some places down here that are on the NBN by choice have nothing but complaints with speeds of less that 1Mbps down, after moving over, which is shocking. My ISP's facebook page is littered with complaints, threats to go to the ACCC, legal concerns, etc.
Many people have written their own firmware for their version of modem that gives a slight performance boost, but nothing to that extent.
For it to be a subversive means to direct a set band of traffic to an obscure server/service I think it would need to be a little more defined. It's one thing to skim the 'cream' from the crop, but another to degrade services to the point they are in some areas here.
Or we're clear of this, being the equivalent of a third world broadband country...
Yeah, been using computers heavily since 1988 and I'm not able to discern Mb from MB. Sorry but no dice.

ssd and usb are in MB not Mb thats probly why they seem slower ur talkimg 10x diferance isp's use Mbps to make them faster
all internet connections have caped speeds and when uncaped are insanly fast docis 3.1 is sopose to be gigabit speeds thats still only 125 MBps

No idea how it works in other countries but here in the Netherlands the connection speeds are determined by the DSLAM (telephone exchange) and not the modem. Depending on your subscription, you are assigned a profile which the modem receives from the DSLAM. In other words, the telcos set the speed and not the modem. The engineers never log in to the modem. They have their own equipment that they use to measure the line.
They recently did a DSLAM upgrade here and without warning my connection went from roughly 35 megabits down to 120 megabits down and 35 megabits up. No increase in price which is nice but to be honest, 120 is overkill for me.
Also remember that everyone thought that CPU's were secure but then
