What speed can I expect from my VDSL line?

The speeds mentioned are theoretical maximum speeds. For Fast via VDSL, these speeds are up to 100 mbps download, and up to 40 mbps upload. We will not do an installation if we see that we cannot offer you at least 40 mbps download speed.

What exactly can cause the actual speed to be lower? Several factors influence this. On the network side, for example, the distance between your house and the street cabinet, how many installations are connected to the same line, ... Furthermore, things such as wiring in your house, location of the modem, the power of the processor on your PC, the number of devices that use bandwidth, etc have an impact as well. You can compare it a bit with a highway: in principle, you can drive up to 120 km per hour, but the condition of the road surface, other cars, and what kind of car you have, ... can cause you to drive slower than 120 km per hour.


On every new installation, a so-called DLM profile is active. This stands for Dynamic Line Management, a  process that checks and tests your line for several weeks after activation. After a positive evaluation, depending on the test results, your line speed can be increased. Please note that the DLM process is fully automated. It is a dynamic process on the current VDSL network. As an operator, Mobile Vikings has no influence on this process. The DLM process keeps on monitoring and testing your line to guarantee a stable line and full quality.
