      ADSL2+ Speed Test

      We estimate your line is capable of between 10mb to 12mb broadband on an ADSL2+ service. This ADSL2 Line Speed Calculator is a best guess only, as to the broadband speed that maybe possible on your telephone line. The checker provides results of up to 24mb with the data that is made available to us. This is purely for indication only and should not be classed as the Line Speed that you would receive on any ADSL or LLU product from another ISP.

      Re: line speed check

      You are doing pretty well as you are You can't improve your attenuation which you would need to do to get much more speed, but you could try plugging into your Test socket, that may improve your speed and/or noise margin

      Re: line speed check

      The distance from the exchange does not matter too much, if you are fairly close to the cabinet, you will get a good speed. That is if you are connected to a cabinet, some who are very close to the exchange are connected direct to it and do not run through a cabinet. In those cases you can't get FTTC and will have to wait for FTTH/P.
