Back in the day when ADSL2 came in I acquired a NTE5 termination box an
purchased a replacement faceplate from Solwise and connected to my
router using a shielded RJ45 cable. When I updated to FTTC in 2017 I
replaced the faceplate with a VDSL one from Solwise. I found no
difference in sync rate between the two.
 I put it badly, but the point I was intending to make was that 70Mbs
from a 80Mbs nominal line was not bad. As usual John W. made the point
more clearly and concisely.
