      Attenuation changed!

      Since moving house back in october, my stats have remained constant. Att has always been 21db. Ive just recently been looking at them again now and its now showing as 24db, with a lower noise margin. As i have it on good authority that my exchange will be unbundled next month (june), i want to get the stats back to how they were ready for 'max'. Im plugged directly into the master socket via a faceplate.

      My stats this morning:

      Re: Attenuation changed!

      I wouldn't worry too much 3db is a very insignificant change and could be down to something daft like all the damp weather getting into the BT box's and underground cables. Your SNR is still well above 6 or 7 where problems start to occur and the rest of your stats look good. So nothing to worry about I dont think.

      So what do you think my line could reliably take on adsl2+ on max?
