SNR improved by order of magnitude!


SNR improved by order of magnitude!

Though connected on (and receiving) a 2MBps service, my router was showing downstream SNR of as low as 2DB. We were getting decent enough speeds, though, so obviously someone at PlusNet thought that it wasn't a problem. I thought it was odd, but let it lie.

Since the regrade from 20:1 to 50:1 contention, the SNR has jumped up to 14-16DB! And the connection speed and quality have (obviously) improved. Is this supposed to happen? Or have BT done some maintenance somewhere that has caused this?

Just curious!

It obviously has to be something to do with BT and I suspect that you will now have been moved to different equipment in the exchange??
Maybe the 20:1 DSLAM's produce nise on the line?

Just a guess :?
