      They're poor I'm afraid.

      With an attenuation of 63 you might get as much as 3meg but only if your noise margin was at the limit (~6db).

      With a line like yours your router will always sync at the highest speed it can with a noise margin of 6.9.

      Noise changes through the day - normally being at its worst between 6 and 10 in the evening. Looking at your current noise margin (current at the time of measuring), I suspect you last booted your router when noise was at its worst and it has now recovered.

      The best you can hope for is to improve the filtering (in effect noise suppression) on your line to reduce the big noise margin swing you're experiencing and look for a typical connection speed around 2 meg.
