      Re: ADSL2+ or not ?

      That's pretty reasonable for your attenuation.

      If you try your test socket you may see a boost of up to ~5000kbps. If you do then consider fitting a replacement faceplate.

      Re: ADSL2+ or not ?

      No offence nobby

      The post is about members who should be on the Max package ie: ADSL2+ or not ? as you are clearly on the Mid package the problems in this thread don't affect you so I am moving this to a forum that will get you some help.

      Please when replying to any post try to keep to the topic

      Thanks

      Some Advice.. Its always advisable to inform your old ISP as soon as you have migrated that you have moved.

      No - even if you had a noise free line (not really possible), with your attenuation you would not see much above 5000kbps whether on ADSL1, 2 or 2+.

      That means whatever ADSL mode you ended up on (it's not that black and white that Mid=ADSLx and Max+ADSLy) your downstream speed would be limited by the attenuation not the package (Mid v Max). You would however probably see a rise in your upstream connection to ~750kbps if you moved to Max.
