      Although I'm obviously happy for all of you who get high speeds, the one that really leaps out at me is Fitzo's connection speed of 6547 / 380 at over 5k from the exchange. That's really impressive.

      Julian, its good untill the dreaded 19:00 period when my snr drops to 5 then i have to reboot and normally then get 3meg true download speed with a snr of 7. Iam going to check my conections in the master socket as there is a big diffrence between the snr in the down and up.

      The thing is Distance from exchange can mean very little when you add the quality of the wiring or the actual legnth of the wiring rather than as the crow flies distance. Someone could be much further away than you and still have double the speed you get.
