X21 Distance limitations

What is the maximum cable length for X21 for a 4Mb and a 2Mb link?

Re: X21 Distance limitations

Hi Carl, X.21 is really the protocol, with X.24 covering the cabling.

http://www.itu.int/rec/T-REC-X.24/en

X.24 is really helpful and says that cable length is limited by the spec of the interchange circuits.

So, to the BT site as a best fuess to who the provider may be - there is no technical info I can find for Megastream, only kilostream (includes Kilostream N), where a max length of 10M is specified.
