maxDSL speeds

just had my maxDSL upgrade today
Line sync at 4448 (Kbps)
Attenuation 47 dB
Noise Margin (SNR) 6.5 dB

Not wanting to seem ungreatful but is this the fastest my line will sync or will it
get faster in the next 10 days with the BRAS learning??

Thanks,

Jimmy

With line stats like that, it's a pretty safe bet you wont get much higher than that. Going under SNR of 5 usually provides an unstable line.. and as the speed increases, the SNR decreases.

Modem/router is on an extension in upstairs room, would I get a better snr if it was plugged into master socket?

Just a thought,

The line sync speed you see is likely to be the absolute maximum achievable otherwise you could experience dropouts. With MaxDSL the sync speed is adjusted automatically so that you end up with the lowest stable SNR-- typically 6-7dB. The only way this can be improved is if you can improve your line conditions to give a better SNR

Quite possibly
