      Looking at your stats I don't think you will get much better speeds than you have now it suggest your are on a real long line either that or there is some bad wiring somewhere creating problems I take it you have no noise problems with the house phone.

      I bet Saturday will have some more suggestions for you though

      Some Advice.. Its always advisable to inform your old ISP as soon as you have migrated that you have moved.

      Question Re: TIER 3 Capped My Bandwidth!

      Cheers for looking into it Wheelie.

      For my own knowledge can you explain what you were looking for in the stats?

      @desi

      Maybe you missed my earlier post (#5)?

      You posted details of your physical connection but didn't follow up on the request to try the test socket. This is important as the test socket eliminates the effects of internal wiring.

      As Wheelie says, with your attenuation you won't get much more speed (a max of ~4600kbps) even with a good connection. The test socket will tell.

      You also missed the stickies in my signature. The first one will answer your questions re stats.
