60/5mbps is the theoretical maximum your service can provide but if there are 100’s of people on your node it could significantly lower your real-world throughput.
If there a enough people on your node you might actually be better off on DSL because it is a point to point technology and you don’t share the bandwidth back to the exchange with other people.
Backhaul from the exchange can be congested but is far less likely than node congestion.
