how do these stats look ?

I know i live a relative distance away from my box so will have difficulty getting anything above 2mb , my line at the mo is 1mb. but i have and do regularly download at my max , solid for long periods.
I have taken some stats from my router and was wondering if any tech minded people out there could inform me if the outlook is good , bad or average in relation to getting some kind of speed increase in the future.

Down Up
SNR Margin 7.9 19.0 dB
Line Attenuation 60.5 31.5 dB




Thanks In Advance

You won't get more than your currntly get if you upgraded to Max or get switched to LLU. The SNR is the problem figure and that is already low, even under the old line stats.

You really are a long way from the exchange so Max/LLU is not going to get you any faster speeds I'm afraid. If you are really unlucky you may actually not get 1Mbs.

thanks for the promp answer , much appreciated !!!
yeah i know its the distance from the exchange thats the prob. But I guess im content with what i have , just wondered what the numbers meant ect.
You make a comment about i might actually not get 1mb , what do you mean by that ?
do i need to opt out of something or contact plus to tell them to not mess with my line for fear of a poorer speed ?

I would say go to trials.plus.net and hit the buton to opt out from MaxDSL, you are very likely to get less than 1Mb on that line.

Sorry to jump in, but what do these figures look like?


ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
Connection Speed 1152 kbps 288 kbps
Line Attenuation 59 db 15.5 db
Noise Margin 13 db 21 db

They are similar to mine. On max I initally got around 2500Kbs down, 432Kbs up but after a while this reduced to 1200Kbs down, 432Kbs up (no idea why it reduced but I could never get it to go any higher - I raise a ticket but after 3 weeks I was moved to LLU so never got to the bottom of it).

So you may get a large increase initially but in the long run you will probably stay the same or get a slight increase.

On LLU I am currently getting 1530Kbs down, 576Kbs up.

The high attenuation means you are going to be affected by noise if there is any, but your current noise margin should see you coping with that.

My line stats were similar to yours on 1Mb, I now get 2.5Mb but get a disconnect most nights, that causes 30s loss of service.

Thanks guys.

Well I will see on the 6th July as I have just migrated to BT and my Max "should " be up and running by then. :!:
N/A

update

Bt engineer visited today ,

did as much as he could with the line ,
told me that the SNR was the culprit for the dropping connection , said that anything under 10 would possibly cause dropouts and i was hovering at 7-8 .

An hour later and some fantastic work from the guy I have a solid SNR of 15 and no line drops , my distance from the exchange obv will not change but i should now have a stable line with no dropouts ,

Thanks plusnet and bt for your help getting this sorted !!
