      Hi

      If you change from Mid to Max, the only real difference you will see is an increased upload speed.

      Mid is the same as Max technology wise and so judging by your stats, I personally don't think you would be better off, unless you want a greater FUP or upload speed.

      tbh No

      I have tried GDMT, ADSL2 and ADSL2+ and no difference, I was better off on GDMT. Unless your line can handle it no difference.

      You are only syncing at 6720mb which is the best your line will handle.

      Try the test socket and see if it improves
