Improved Noise Margin figures on 512kbps line - will it make any difference?

My Netgear DG834G router is connected to a slave socket.  On Saturday I fitted a BT I-plate to the master socket and a shorter cable from the router to the slave socket.
My noise margin figures have improved significantly - from 11-13db to what you see below - and this has remained pretty consistent since Saturday.
Figures are now as follows: -
                                              Down              Up
Connection Speed            576 kbps  288 kbps
Line Attenuation              58 db         15.5 db
Noise Margin                 27 db         24 db

Only the noise margin figures have changed significantly.
From what I've read, those noise margin figures are pretty good - can I expect to get a better sync speed in the next couple of days or am I stuck at half a meg?
Thanks

That looks like a fixed 512 line according to this http://www.kitz.co.uk/adsl/linestats.htm
You should see improved speeds if you move to ADSL Max.
