      As in good what do you want to know for?

      To me your Line Attenuation appears high to say you are only 2km from the exchange. My Line Attenuation is 23.0 down and 10.8 up.

      So with an attenuation of 48 down and 55 up seems quite high as I probably live between 1.5 and 2km away from my telephone exchange (by road not as the crow fly's)

      So I would say the speed test is quite healthy for the line stats?

      I'd say that judging by your sync speed and the speedtest result, its not a million miles out, a speedtest would only typically give around 70-80% of your sync speed, allowing for network traffic, connection overheads etc, I'd say you are doing ok.
      Remember... Crows may fly in straight lines, but copper wires from phone exchanges dont. They can go all over the place before they get to your door.

      You may however be able to improve your sync speed by carrying out all the usual checks and optimising your telephone connections. There are thousands of threads on hundreds of forums to help with this.

      Although you are with Zen you appear to be on BT's ADSLMax. If so, you are probably getting as much as your line will handle. You can check this by trying a BT Performance check. To do this go to - Test Result and put in your phone number, then the ADSL username from your router. If you cannot use this tester, then I am wrong about your connection type.
