Will more users kill RADSL connection?

We live on the feather-edge of RADSL receiption. It took 2 weeks of testing diffferent routers (connected to master socket) and firmware to get an RADSL signal. Signal sometimes drops as at least one of the 7 standard tests conducted by BT will be out of range. SNR margin usually >10 and Loop Attenuation >60. I cannot run any other telephone equipment in the house (have to use wireless phones directly off the master socket)

I am the only one to get receiption in our village. I'd like to tell everyone of the solution to getting RADSL but this could easily add >20 users. It would be counter-productive if this would knock out my service and theirs too.

Anyone know if the extra RADSL traffic will reduce signal strength and kill the whole service for the village.

Thanks

There should be no effect on the actual signal strength with extra users.
The only thing you may notice but not necessarily, is the effect of contention if you were all downloading from the net at the same time.
Mathematically this is unlikely.
So extra users should not cause you signal to worsen.

John,

Thanks. Good to think we can bring more people into the broadband experience.
