      Any advantages in upgrading to Unlimited with these stats??

      Hi

      Answering my own question its has to be yes if only for the unlimited usage (following the unilateral reducton form 40Gb to 10 which I am still seething about).

      I really have two questions though:

      1. My understanding is that my exchange was one of the first to be "upgraded" so should I now be getting faster a faster download speed with Everyday?

      2. Would the inevitable move to unlimited eek out any extra speed with my attenuation and noise? (I have ADSL faceplate and Pro Plus cable etc).

      Many thanks

      Longshanks

      Nope with those stats you are probably going as fast as you ever will. The only advantage is you will not have to worry about the 10gb limit.

      Your line is on ADSL2+ Which can raise your Attenuation by about 2-4dB.
      If your line was on G.dmt I would say you may receive 4.5 - 5mb TOPS!
      With the current attenuation is seems that you are near enough maxing your line out.

      An upgrade to Unlimited will only give you extra bandwidth to use each month... Hence it's name...
