DSL works through telephone line and gives u pretty good speeds in megs/sec. i am not sure about the maximum.india would do good if companies tries to deliver broadband through powerlines.

Why 10mbit/s? Because from jan or feb BSNL(atleast in blore) is going to start offering TV over DSL to its customers. Out of the 10mbit d/l, 6-8Mbit will be dedicated to TV and the remaining for internet. But I doubt speeds for internet will go above 512k. Also don't expect phone(VOIP) because BSNL will not cannibalize its phone services.
