Are these figures any good?

Could anyone with an understanding of SNR and Line Attenuation quickly comment on these figures? Good or Bad will do Smiley


SNR Margin
13dB Down, 27dB Up
Line Attenuation
9dB Down, 4dB Up
Data Rate
8128 kbps, 448kbps

Thanks,

Wayne

SNR margin is "Signal to Noise Ratio margin" which is a measure of how much stronger your signal is compared to the noise on your line. The higher the figure the better. Generally speaking at least 6dB is needed for a stable connection, 10 dB considered good, so your connection is twice as good as that!!

Line attenuation is a measure of how much signal is lost between the transmitting and receiving ends. The lower the figure the better. With your attenuation figures I would say that you are probably no more than 400m from your local exchange.

The figures that you are interested in are the Downstream figures.

Hope that helps.

Hmm! Another one who could max out a 24Mbps ADSL2+ connection without really trying-- a lot of people could become extremely jealous! :shock: Tongue

You could always try to persuade her that the net curtains would look good on the exchange windows! :lol:
