thats because the network itself is new, its not just an addon to the exsisting one. so you have a line from your modem back to whats called a dslam, well the old 24 port dslam connected back to the ISP infrastructure by means of a t-3(45 megabits per second)line, well the new dslam's connect back to the infrastructure by means of an OC (fiberoptics line) that can connect to the rest of the infrastructure by much higher speed rates( probably in the range of gigabits) so now you eliminated any bottlenecks of over subscription of the dslam.
