      Currently on Base package, but looking to improve things for internet browsing and (more importantly) XBox 360 online over the coming weeks.

      Would an ADSL faceplate make much difference??

      Just done a speedtest and getting 1763 down and 350 up...

      Thanks in advance.

      You are on the 2mb base package and are synchronising at 2mb.

      Upgrading to the Mid package is the only way of improving your speed.
      At that stage it may be worth considering a filtered faceplate.

      as your on Base SNR levels are irrelevent as they will be high due to the line being capped to 2Mbps...

      basically, you're getting the best you will without upgrading - on Mid you should see the full 8Mbps...

      there's nothing wrong getting a filtered faceplate now but speed won't increase...

      Your noise margin is very high indeed. How are you connected to the telephone line? Wireless, extentions and are these stats taking from the master socket?

      My router is connected to the master socket, my laptop connects to the router via wireless. Its the classic BT master socket, with supplied plug-in filter, where the telephone and router are plugged into to.....looks a bit of a mess, though probably fairly common I would imagine....

      Your noise margin is very high indeed.
      Nothing wrong there, it is high because the connection is a Base one capped at 2MB. It would not be so high on Mid with an uncapped connection. It does look like 8MB would be possible, which would be good on a 40db line. Remember the higher the noise margin the better, within reason

      Re: How do these stats look?? Room for improvement??

      Upgraded to the Sky Mid package last night, and despite the fact that the Sky CS Rep suggesting there would be ZERO increase in speed on my line, things do seem to be moving a lot faster.



      I'm now wondering whether to buy an ADSL Nation faceplace, as I'm currently using a dangly filter, then a double extension into this for telephone line and broadband cable into my router...anyone think this would give me any better speeds?? Here's my detailed stats from Mossywell's BSR (thanks Mossywell):

      Thanks IANTE - but you've lost me there...anything I can do to monitor/improve this SNR??

      EDIT: Oh, and another thing, my speed test results keep changing pretty drastically...here's one I did just now:
