      Question Is it worth upgrading to MAX?:veryconfused:

      I have asked this in the past,just before DLM or whatever it was called
      My Broadband seems to be working consistently well
      Connects at around 5mb d/l and 220/300 u/l with what appears to be no dropouts although I do have the occasional speed loss
      I have posted my stats below
      My router is connected to the pc with an etehernet cable which isdirectly connected to my master socket all within 1ft of each other

      Unless you need the unlimited downloads, faster uploads, then IMO you have nothing to gain by switching to MAX.
      I suspect the reason you are asking is you think you may get a faster sync speed on ADSL2+?.

      they're already on adsl2+ so basically the only difference will be upload speed...

      Not all people on DLM are on ADSL2+ depends on the line an what the predicted max speed is not to mention attenuation.

      In my opinion the extra 5 will not get you a whole load of extra speed and it may make your internet connection more unstable.
