      Opinions re attenuation

      Activated today, had somebody skip DLM for me. Quite happy with my current stats. One note of interest though, my downstream atn went fom 26db to 32db. I expected some rise due to going from ads1 to adsl2 but not quite that much. My upstream attenuation is also quite a bit lower than what I was on with my old provider. I can plug in my BT home hub and it still measures my attenuation at 26db Any other experiences of such considerable jumps with attenuation?

      Stats (from master socket with only router connected via filter)

      Connection Speed 13544 kbps 1114 kbps
      Line Attenuation 32 db 7 db
      Noise Margin 9 db 9 db

      That upstream attenuation will likely be an incorrect reading. Regarding the big downstream attenuation jump, it will be a mixture between being changed to adsl2plus (albeit a big jump) and possibly the other router being a bit optimistic.

      Thought so. I expected a jump but not that much. All I wanted was the 1mb upload and I got that so happy enough. Throughput on the downstream isn't that great at the moment.
