Local Exchange Upgraded to Adsl2+ - would there by a speed increase and how to upgrade if so

Hello,

I've enclosed my Home Hub 3 ADSL stats as I've learnt my local exchange has been upgraded to ADSL2+ and i'm wondering whether we can upgrade and if it would be worth doing -and how you go about it if so.

At present we get 1.5Mb roughly so any increase would be most useful. We can not get bt fibre. We are approximately 3Km from the exchange.

In advance many thanks for your help.

Re: Local Exchange Upgraded to Adsl2+ - would there by a speed increase and how to upgrade if so

your noise margin is very high at 13.4db have you been having problems with conenction dropping or was it manual reset?  you have 4 days connection time so appears to have stabilised but your up speed is low as it should be 448kbps

 

are you using te test socket with a new filter or have you tried the test socket? test socket.jpg

Hi, thanks for responding.

We occasionally need to reset the router but in general it is not a problem.

 

I did try the test socket, the download limit increased marginally from about 1.5Mbs to 1.8Mbs.

I can re-do it and provide the noise margin details if that'd be useful ??

 

Thanks again

Mike

Re: Local Exchange Upgraded to Adsl2+ - would there by a speed increase and how to upgrade if so

How many times a day do you reset the router? This could be the cause of your high noise margins resulting in your low speeds.

 

Your DSL check shows max speeds for the phone number you used yet you have a 58db attenuation suggesting (as you said) a 3km+ line length which normally only gets speeds anywhere between 1-4 mbps download.

 

ADSL2+ is more aggresive on line noise and upgrading to it could make matters worse. You could expect about a 100% increase in upload speed though.

as you have already posted stats showing connection stable can you conenct direct to test socket without an extension cable with a new filter and repost your router stats please     when you connect to test socket are all your other internal phone sockets 'dead'

Strange how you can't get FTTC. Cabinet 3 on Melbourn exchange was live for FTTC in December 2014.

Yes it would appear the cabinet is quite close to the exchange, within a couple of hundred meters. What is your post code OP?

Test socket check required....
