Use your own real-world measurements.

As above. If your downstream is consistently what you measure it as being,
then use that figure.
FWIW, my readings here in the UK are as follows:
| official | modem | adslguide.org.uk test
Upstream | 256 | 288 | 241
Downstream | 1024 | 1152 | 960
Make sure you run tests fairly regularly with traffic shaping disabled to
make sure your up/down pipes are a worst-case figure (some contended
connections are noticably slower at around 4pm when the kids come home from
school, for example).
