      is this the fastest speed i can get?

      was thinking of upgrading from sky base to sky mid, but i'm not sure what the max speed my line can handle - bt's exchange checker states my max download should only be 512kbps:

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 2048 kbps 416 kbps
      Line Attenuation 63.5 db 31.5 db
      Noise Margin 6.5 db 14.0 db

      with that attenuation you wont see to much of an increase, your upload speed will go up did you take those stats from the test socket?

      If the stats are the same from the TEST socket then that is all you will get due to the distance from the exchange.

      here's the stats from the test socket:
      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 1952 kbps 416 kbps
      Line Attenuation 63.5 db 31.5 db
      Noise Margin 7.9 db 13.0 db

      looks like the fastest speed i'm going to get.

      Yep, that's the quickest you'll get. If you upgraded, your upstream will go to 608 and obviously you'll benefit from more bandwidth, but no increase in downstream.
