Will Infinity 2 / 76MB / 80MB Service increase the distance you can be from the street cabinet?

I live about 2.5km from my new snazzy fibre fibre cabinet. Unfortunately this is about 1km to far to get the fibre service.

 

Does doubling the speed to 80MB increase the distance it will travel? i.e. now that it starts at twice the speed at the cabinet, can it go twice the distance?

Actually, the 80/20 product runs at higher frequencies and this lowers the distance it can travel without noise and loss :-{

 

Sigh ......

 

This is in part why some people are only seeing a small increase or even a drop in speed when moving from 40/10 to 80/20.

The most thing that affects peoples download speeds is the copper wire from the cabinet to the household, this can be either because of more joints or longish wiring. The longer the wire, technically the less the download speeds.
