From what i can see, the BT site will not tell you if you can recieve speeds of over 6.5mb, and it certainly doesn't mention anything about LLU speeds/ADSL2.
So the chances are, if it says you can recieve 6.5mb according to BT, you could most probably get double figures.

No it will only tell you want your line is capable of on IP Stream ie: BT's DSlams
You can get a rough idea here DSL ZoneUKRay

I only noticed once checking my connections & your link that i had a faceplate so i was just telling my experience & that was it !
After all with my limited experience of these things it could have been a facecream sat in my BT socket rather than a faceplate & i wouldn't know

well i wouldn't even have thought about the faceplate if it hadn't been recommended on here.
I have been stuck on 3.2mb since April this year, alas no more

I knew when I ordered my Max service that I wouldn't get anywhere near 16mbit downloads, but I wanted an unlimited download and £10 per month was still a saving over my NTL cable link.
For casual surfing Max is complete overkill for anyone, as even if you did have a 16mbit download there aren't too many sites that will push the data out to you that fast.
