Attainable rate / Line rate

Apologies if this questions been asked before - but can anyone explain in simple terms what is the difference is between Line rate / Attainable rate?
I've got an unlocked HG612 modem - the DSL stats show  a Line rate of 79455 and an Attainable rate of 78992 for downstream (with SNR of almost 10). I naively assumed Attainable rate would've been higher than the Line (Sync) rate? The upstream Attainable is a lot higher than the Line figure. Am I missing something here, or is there something wrong with the setup or connection?
Many thanks.

For some reason this is nearly always the case on FTTC, at least with the HG612. Nothing to worry about.

Re: Attainable rate / Line rate

Ok cheers. By the way, can anyone point me in the right direction to update the HG612 stats software to v5.1? I've tried the link via the kitz forum page (http://www.freewarefiles.com/HG612-Modem-Stats_program_84567.html) but this doesn't seem to work. Any help greatly appreciated?
