Will I get any difference on Max Dsl?

Hi, I have not got Max Dsl yet but will do in a few months according to Plus Net.
Just wondering if I am likely to see any improvement in speed. I would like a faster upload speed as I have an online ftp server which I use for work.
My line is very poor as I live almost 5 miles from my exchange in Downpatrick.
My line information is as follows:

SNR Margin:
Down: 19.6 Up: 17

Attenuation:
Down: 59 Up: 31.5

Data rate:

Down: 1152 Up: 288


Thanks; Sean

They are similar figures to me (except you have a slightly better downstream SNR) so you should get 2Mbs (as I have now with MaxDSL, like you I was on 1Mbs) and possibly 2.5Mbs due to the better SNR figure.

Thanks. That's good news. Did your upload speed change?

Forgot to ask. Is there a timetable anywhere on the internet detailing when MaxDsl is comming to each exchange?

All the exchanges that can have MaxDSL were upgraded by 31st March 2006.

Use the usertools exchange checker to see if your exchange has got MaxDSL.

Yes you will see an upload speed increase to 448Kbs.
