There is more to it.
look up "fastpath adls". throughput and latency are coupled
in funny _and_ variable ways for *DSL .

My DSL provider recently tested variable connection setups
where allocated bandwidth for upstream and downstream traffic
(and the summ of both) is optimised for max throughput
( depending on the copper line utilisation, the weather and how
much money I have in the bank ;-).
Retraining happens on a regular basis.
