      still poor speed for your line attenuation........
      u should be getting around 5 - 6mbps
      and your upload is pretty good mate....

      Re: Slow speeds

      If there was a zero between the 1 and 2 of your speed figure, it would be about right. As it is it is rubbish and it looks like you are not going to get any more. There is something seriously wrong somewhere when your attenuation drops 7dbs with no improvement.

      I think you may be in an area where there is still aluminium in the line. This drastically reduces its performance. If this is the case it may be better if your line was moved back from ADSL2 to G.DMT.
