      Is this a noisy line?

      Hi,

      Just done a test on my router and is this good or bad? , I am on Sky Mid

      Download

      8160kbps
      Line Attenuation 24db
      Noise Margin 7db

      Upload

      384kbps
      Line Attenuation 12db
      Noise margin 13db


      These were taken by logging into the router admin and im using wifi

      Thats with no extensions in the house , just from the drop cable to the master socket (via a junction from external cable to internal cable)

      I was thinking of going for the adsl2 and wondered if i would get them speeds or is this classed as a quiet line and i would get them speeds?

      Matt

      These are very good results, with your attenuation you should get 16Mb. However your noise margin is a bit low, which may effect ADSL2+ badly. Plug into the Test socket and try from there. With no extensions there should not be much difference, but you never know. Also check your voice line for noise.

      Wireless speedtest?
