      thats just being greedy - if ur getting 1.6Mb on downloads then you're getting the full throughput of ur line....I woulda expected a slightly higher noise margin, its near the 6 mark which is when the bb box will start to disconnect

      however, i can see nothing wrong with that connection at all, you're one of the lucky ones

      is that what your looking for?
      Yes thats it, you wont get any more out of your line than that, even if you move inside the exchange, 16384 kbps would be the theoretical maximum but I wouldn't worry about the odd 4 bits.

      You might want to try TCP optimiser to improve the throughput in your PC.
