      You have alot of noise on your line, which is why you have a low noise margin you should try the test socket to look for an increase in noise margin.

      With that attenuation you should see the full 20Mb when you have sorted out the noise problem.

      thanks Andy, well on day 2 and since then I have the following. Am plugged into master socket as suggested.

      Connection Speed 13307 kbps 970 kbps
      Line Attenuation 11.5 db 4.9 db
      Noise Margin 18.4 db 8.0 db

      You should get the full 20Mb. You appear to have an exceptionally good line.
