How Does DSL Bursting Work

Specifically in the UK, I'm trying to find out how the burst works that you experiance at the start of a download for a typical DSL service in the UK.

What determins the max speed you can burst to, available unused bandwidth at your exchnge; i.e. the link from the core to the DSLAM/MSAN you're connected to?

What device determins how long the burst is for before the rate limit kicks in, the DSLAM/MSAN? In the case of BT, the BRAS? The LAC?

How does this process/set up differ with LLU services compared to buying direct again with say, BT?

Many thanks to all for reading and any help you can provide

I'm afraid this is not the right forum either for your ISP-specific questions.
