Attenuation rates need help for regrade

Unfortunately the figures you have shown are outside of the limits for 1Mb. Once MaxDSL is introduced, you may be able to give it a try, but will most probably experience problems, especially since you have a fairly low Signal to Noise Margin.

Signal to noise? Is there any way I can change this I don't mind paying. It just really does my head in that I cant get a decent phone line when I actually live in a prosperous area (im the skint one on the block)

Unfortunately it's not something you can just pay for to get sorted. Noise on the line can be caused by a very large amount of factors. Decent microfilters on your line will stop noise straying. A faceplate on the master socket might also improve this if you dont already have one. Have you tried plugging directly into the master socket? If not, that too might be helpful as it could bring your figures slightly within limits. It might be worth a try attempting a regrade, it could all work well, but theres no guarantee.
