      IMO i would not bother, the new routers do handle noise better but still connect with a NM of 6.9, your stats show 4db which would still make me think you have some problems and dropping the cap may give you back your prolems (or not ?)

      again only my thoughts (but i am a lazy so and so, could not be bothered with all the phone calls for a little more speed )

      from that noise margin and speed i doubt you are capped at all.

      ^^^^^^^^^
      I agree - Skyuser tester reports for your 38Dbs-
      ADSL2+ Speed Test

      We estimate your line is capable of between 9mb to 10mb broadband on an ADSL2+ service.

      If you complain you may even be taken off ADSL2+ and put on G,DMT
