That's a total fob-off, read from this site
. Those figures are normally under-estimates.
Did he tell you why you aren't on ADSL2+?
Ah - yes, someone else recently got told they weren't on ADSL2+ because it wouldn't benefit them. Well in your case it would. The line stats tell us the truth about your line. That info is just from a known-to-be dodgy database.
Try putting your stats into this checker
, then this one
, and take a look at this graph
and then this one
. If you want to be cautious, on the graphs look at 44dB attenuation for the ADSL2+ figures, as you often find attenuation goes up by 3dB on a move from ADSL to ADSL2+.
Have a look at this page
, particularly re G.DMT and ADSL2+. (On the right).
The default noise margin immediately after connecting is 6dB. Some time, reconnect and read the stats immediately. Better done in daylight though, (or repeated then if you do it now). You will probably get a lower speed at night that in the daytime.
Our test also indicates that your line currently supports an estimated ADSL2+ broadband line speed of 3.5Mbps; typically the line speed would range between 2Mbps and 6Mbps. Our test also indicates that your line could support an estimated ADSL 2+ Annex-M broadband upstream line speed of 500Kbps and downstream line speed of 3.5Mbps; typically the downstream speed would range between 2Mbps and 6Mbps.
Our test also indicates that your line currently supports a fibre technology with an estimated WBC FTTC Broadband where consumers have received downstream line speed of 51.7Mbps and upstream line speed of 13.2Mbps.
6Mbps was normal for me on ADSL2+. My current FTTC connection speeds are 56626/14078kbps.
