Mine is about 150 yards away and I get a sync speed of 76.5 Mbps (*not* 
mbps which would be dreadful).

Bear in mind though that the sync speed which you get has nothing to do 
with the ISP which you use.  Regardless of who provides your back-haul 
service, the sync speed is dictated by the quality of the wire between 
you and the cabinet.  Switching to a different ISP will make no 
difference to it, unless you also switch to a different infrastructure 
(e.g. Virgin).

The original query though was about IP address allocations and DNS. 
That *is* under the control of your chosen ISP.
