Quick Query.

Hi All
I'm on 2Mb ADSL at present with no problems. My router reports my line to be:

SNR: 20.5
Loop: 33.5

My query is, do you think my line will support the new higher speeds when they come in (4Mb/8Mb etc...). Are these new speeds ADSL2/ADSL2+ (ie I'll need a new router!) or just box standard ADSL? + does anyone know when this is likely to be ?

thankyou!

I would say you'll certainly be able to get a higher speed... but just how far is going to be up to the results of the trial.

Your SNR isn't as healthy as it could be... so you're more likely to be limited by that rather than your loop loss. I'd hazard a guess at 4Mb though.

These are ADSL, and should be supported by your current hardware. Public rollout is likely to be in April of next year.

thanks for the reply - is there anything I can do to improve the SNR, or is that's the way it just is ?

If your router is connected via an extension, you could try it at the master socket to see if you get a better reading. But to be honest you may not see a reduction of any degree if your internal wiring is up to scratch.
