      Adsl or Adsl+

      Is there a way to find out which flavour of adsl i am on, using the line speed calculator i get a result of 3 to mbps on adsl+2 with a line attenuation of 61.5db

      SamKnows gives the following info about my exchange (NDLON ) but i don't see any reference to adsl+2

      BT Wholesale information
      ADSL status: Enabled as of 28/02/2001
      ADSL Max status: Enabled as of 31/03/2006
      SDSL status: Not available
      21CN WBC status: Not available
      FTTC status: Available in some areas
      FTTP status: Available in some areas

      what i would like to know is if i am on standard or the + version if this is possible from the info from SamKnows

      If you are on BT then you would be on ADSL Max (up to 8Mb).
      On BT 21CN WBC is the name of their ADSL2+ service.

      If you are on Sky broadband Unlimited you will be on ADSL2+ (up to 24Mb).
      If you have broadband Connect then you will be on ADSL Max.

      Your exchange has both Sky and TalkTalk who both use only ADSL2+ in their own network areas.

      There is both versions of Fibre in your exchange though not necessarily at your home/cabinet:

      FTTC status: Available in some areas
      FTTP status: Available in some areas

      So there is likely to be something better in the future if it's not there yet.

      On ADSL your sync speed figures would be divisible by 32.
      On ADSL 2+ they won't be.
