      Please give me your opinion

      Hi all, now i just want your opinions on my stats because it feels like i should be getting more but after reading some threads im not to sure. I show you my exchange distance, speed test result, and my stats:

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 7616 kbps 768 kbps
      Line Attenuation 41.0 db 26.5 db
      Noise Margin 9.9 db 14.0 db

      Now in my opinion with my distance i should get faster speeds, however with my line attenuation of 41.0db im getting around about the right speed. I know that the signal from the exchange to my router aint in a straight line, it goes more like a cab driver. But surely it should't add that much to my line attenuation? With the table that shows what speeds you should get with your line attenuation, and also how far it works out your away from the excanhge, so it works it adds over another 1km!

      i'm not expert but come on, another km? Please give me your opinion so i dont go mad over this thank you.

      You've already answered your own question. You don't have a straight line (few do).

      BTW a connection speed of 7616kbps with an attenuation of 41db is a little low. On a relatively noise free line you could expect a bit over 10000kbps. Possibly the shortfall is down to having a generous noise margin (a good thing) but a comparison between your normal connection and plugged directly into your test socket would tell you what improvements are possible.
