      Line Attenuation Query

      When I was on a fixed 2Mb line from Zen my line attenuation was a constant 44. Since changing to ADSL2+ this has gone up to 49. Is there a reason for this, such as wiring in the exchage etc, as nothing else has been physicaly changed ?

      Regards, JT.

      Different ADSL technology.

      ADSL2+ uses a much wider frequency range and this will change (increase) the measured attenuation figure.

      Thanks for the prompt reply. I'll sleep easier tonight knowing that there's nothing wrong.
