      You are only 3.8 KM from the exchange with line attenuation of 53db. There is scope for a little more say 3mb approx.
      Ask CST to allow faster pings for gaming

      Re: Is there more speed possible

      For that line attentuation I would expect a speed of 5-6mbps. Can you please connect your router to the test socket, if you have one and repost the stats from there. See How to test your ADSL in the Master Socket for details of the test socket.
