      Mode: ADSL2+
      Channel: Fast
      Trellis: ON
      Line Status: No Defect
      Training Status: Showtime
      Down Up
      SNR (dB): 4.4 7.5
      Attn(dB): 44.5 25.1
      Pwr(dBm): 18.6 12.6
      Max(Kbps): 7232 1051
      Rate (Kbps): 6002 1044

      The test socket that I tried made no difference to my original stats. However by altering the SNR % in my router firmware you can see a definate increase. I have been monitoring it and the connection stays solid as before.
      Your SNR is rather low and I could imagine as the line gets noisier nearing the evening that you could experience drop-outs or even a slower throughput. Personally, I'd fiddle the SNR back to where it was before.

      I agree, using DMT and similar tools to drop the noise margin is not a good idea. As it syncs faster you may think it is faster, but in all probability it is slower. A low noise margin means there is more likelihood of errors, meaning data has to be resent, resulting in an overall slower speed. If you are happy just seeing a higher sync speed, that's OK.
