Really slow connectivity, which is normal, but would switching to ADSL2+ help?

Other than being SLOOOOW, is this line easily identifiable as ADSL1 or ADSL2+, I ask, as SpeedTest Checkers show the line as being capable of UPTO 2.5MB.

A tiny 'upgrade' to ADSL2+ giving upto 2.5MB would be an absolute godsend, given that we're so used to getting .5MB.

I appreciate that living in rural areas, we're lucky to get what we do, however, if there's a little more juice to get out of the line, then it would be worth trying!

You are on ADSL MAX up to 8Mb service

this link should show if ADSL2+ is available to you you are on a very long line and as ADSL2+ is more noise aggressive and due to your line length you are unlikely to see any speed increase

ADSL2+ became available recently (info via SamKnows) however, I believe I am still on an original ADSL1 line, and am wondering if I may see a slight increase by switching to the ADSL2+ modulation?

Re: Really slow connectivity, which is normal, but would switching to ADSL2+ help?

your connection speed at present is l;ow due to the higher than normal 6db noise margin

 

with your current attenuation an upgrade to adsl2 will have little benefit and if you have line noise it certainly won't help as it is more aggressive on noise than adslmax

 

check possible speed difference here - add 1 or 2db  to current attenuation for upgrade

 

 



 

check speed

as i posted earlier due to your long line and the fact that your attenuation will also increase by 2db your speed is unlikely to increase also ADSL2+ is more noise aggressive you could be liable to more disconnections unless a lot of work is carried out on the line
