What's the maximum internet speed one can have with ADSL

I know Telus Fibre for example is very fast, but what about regular DSL?

It depends on your area, but I'd say their Internet 100 would be the highest option possible (which is a pair of bonded connections - basically 2 "lines").

ADSL best speed is 8
ADSL 2+ is 24

DSgamby's listing is my understanding as well.

Most bell Fibe is not direct fiber to the house (though that is available in toronto and some other areas), and running on the same copper into the house, it does allow for much faster speeds. (the equipment closer to the house has been upgraded, so its really only that last mile its doing across the phonelines.

We're both kind of right. I was thinking more of VDSL which has a maximum of 52Mbps down for one line (as stated, Telus uses a bonded connection to achieve the 100Mbps speed on the Internet 100).

Max speed is a combination of communication protocol and distance.

Note that many (most???) modern ADSL implementations are using Fibre to the VRAD "Street Cabinet", which contain FO-to-Hard Copper Converters. So Hard Copper Pair distance is reduced to under 1/4 to perhaps 1/2-mile.

OTOH: If you ask how fast you can go over these much shorter Hard Copper Pairs, the answer is up to about 1 Gbps using G.FAST Technology....although initially they're rolling out 100-300 Mbps offerings in select areas, depending on distance to VRAD:

And they're experimenting with going MUCH FASTER:
