I can't edit your post
All done. I tried that before but didn't find an Edit option. I now think that was because I wasn't logged in at the time. Thanks for your help.
Our exchange has been 21CN enabled for about a year and a half.
We never got upgraded or even offered an upgrade. We've just sidestepped and upgraded on Infinity instead
15p per quatrer dearer.
Not much chance of Infinity in my area, unfortunately, as it's a remote village with not many inhabitants. I have to sqeeze the best that I can from my copper connection back to the exchange!
Hello Keith. Thank you for putting me in touch with the mods team. They have been most helpful and have given me an upgrade from ADSLMax to what I can only describe as ADSL2 and a bit. My downstream rate is still "Up to 8Mbps" but my upstream rate has been increased to in excess of 1 Mbps (was 448kbps). Apparently my line is too long to provide a reliable faster downstream connection with ADSL2+. My latest line stats are below. My line attenuation has increased by about 4.5dB as a result of the change to G.992.5 modulation which makes my 8Mbps downstream connection about the best than be achieved even with full ADSL2+. It's all very complicated, isn't it!

your downstream is now up to 20mb (24mb) but is so happens your connection speed is 8120. your noise margin is slightly above the normal 6db (now even 3db) so it may go down to about 6db with a small increase in your downstrean connection speed
what is odd though is you are on interleaved but there are no FEC errors but quiet a few crc/hec and error seconds more like fast than interleaved
That might be one for RogerB to answer, it could just be that the home hub is reporting the wrong status?
The main thing now is to leave the connection alone, so the exchange can gather performance data.
I think that is probably the answer as new connection are usually fast first or at least mine was but I agree at present I would leave connection alone
It seems that there is a capability to set an increased Upstream rate without an increased Downstream. As suggested I plan to leave well alone and see what happens. I don't know where my FEC errors have gone either (I'm using a Home Hub 2B).
