whats the difference local v's remote attenuation

My modem shows local attenuation at 38 and remote at 21 with snr at 23 local and 13.5 remote.

What is the difference between the two and which ones do I want to be lower local or remote. I have the idea it should be local attn that I wish as low as possable what about the others.

Attenuation was 44 to 45 when I 1st moved to plusnet but somework has obviously been done my line in my favour.

I'm not to sure but on working a few things out I think -

Local attenuation = Downstream (38dB)
Remote attenuation = Upstream (21dB)

Snr Local = Downstream (23dB)
Snr Remote = Upstream (13.5dB)

So it seems your Downstream Attenuation is below the 42dB limit (38dB) and your Snr is above 10dB/12dB (23dB). If it's 2Mb you are after you should get it.

Don't take this as 100% truth though - I'm still learning myself.

Yes that's correct.
Local is Downstream, which is the one that matters, and you're within the 2Mb limit.
