512 or 1 Mb???

Just got this info from my Voyager 105 USB modem.
Does any of it mean that I could get 1 Mb connection rather than the 512 that I am on at the moment?

512 or 1 Mb???

1Mb may be fine and 2Mb is out of reach (requres 43dB). Although a 9dB SNR is a tad low and may be a problem at 1Mb - when the speed increases, the SNR often decreases and anything below 10dB is considered marginal for reliability.

FYI it's the local (= downstream) figures you are interested in.

Also see ADSL: Understanding Line Loss and measurements which explains what the dB figures mean.

Thanks for the link. Explains it all for me now.
