Thanks for clarifying this..
So SKY will only take on customers that have a Line to their local exchange that is LLU enabled.

Not at all thats what the Connect package is for so they can offer any customer who want to change that option and once or if there exchange is LLU enabled they will then be moved over free of charge to the Mid package I believe.Ray
Some Advice.. Its always advisable to inform your old ISP as soon as you have migrated that you have moved.
If you would like to know the straight line distance to your exchange then
Would you like an idea of the possible speeds you will get with the Max Package then click here or for the Connect Package then click here

Sorry, may be being a bit thick here - just want to check my understanding.
I'm currently trying to decide between Mid and Max package. My line stats (ATT=48, SNR=7) suggests that I'm not going to get over 8Mbps so I was favouring the 'Mid'.
I had assumed the only difference between the Mid and Max packages were the potential speeds and the download caps but that they were using the same technology.
But, these posts say that Mid uses 'ADSL2' whilst Max uses 'ADSL2+' - Is that correct?
I've also seen the graph and at my distance from the excahnge there would be little difference but there maybe some.
So is it true to say that even if my speed is less than 8Mbps it is possible that it may be slightly better with the Max than with the Mid.
Are there any other advantgaes of ADSL2+ over ADSL2 - stability, ping times etc.

Thats what i've been wondering about too...

Seems to be no advantage in my case (43 db attenuation, 6db noise). Sync is actually less than what I had on BT MaxDSL.
I am on Max and Easynet LLU enabled.

EDIT: YIKES! The last sentence was supposed to say "shouldn't", not "should". OMG - I must have sounded like an arrogant buffoon!

This is all very confusing, mossywells's explaination for ADSL2+ sounds more like how I thought ADSL max works, i.e. it is "rate adaptive". ADSL2 sticks with what it finds at the time of initialising, which is why our connections "drop out" as the line quality varies. Do we have anyone on here who really understands the various ADSL variants?

Someone that understands it? Yup - there are lots that post here regularly. Someone that understands it and that'll you'll believe and trust? Ah well, now that's only something you can answer.IQ album "Dark Matter" artwork reproduced with permission. See www.gep.co.uk/iq for more information.

Sorry Mossywell, you obviously understand it a lot better than me.
At what sort of distance do the benifits of ADSL2+'s higher frequencys die?
