      Distance from the phone exchange is a big factor.

      Try this site:-
      DSL ZoneUK - broadband for everyone

      It can give you a rough estimate off max speed.

      If you know what your current, downstream, line attenuation is (should be on your router settings page somewhere) you can put it in to this site to get an idea of what you are likely to get on ADSL2+ (Max).

      ADSL Link..............Down .............Up
      Connection Speed..9215 kbps......606 kbps
      Line Attenuation... 20.0 db..........11.9 db
      Noise Margin........ 20.9 db..........22.0db

      Re: Maximum Speed on my phone line

      I suppose the link would be a good idea

      DSL ZoneUK - How fast can I get on ADSL2+?

      After all that, I got beaten to it!

      Re: Maximum Speed on my phone line

      Hi Guys,
      Thanks very much for your help.

      I have a downstream attenuation of 40db and a noise margin of 30db which the site tells me means 6.5-7.3 Mbps which would be a whole lot better than my 1 meg at present
