So....what is my max broadband speed?


[link to this post]
 
Hi, what is my maximum possible broadband speed? Can anyone figure it out?

MAAF Speed tests indicate about 5Meg.
However, the BT speed tester for my line says I can get the following:

Between 8.5Mb and 19.0Mb
(Estimated speed: 15.0Mb)
===================
Router stats:
Modem Status Connected
DownStream Connection Speed 7616 kbps
UpStream Connection Speed 448 kbps
VPI 0
VCI 38
===================

Colour me confused?!

What does your router say for margin and attenuation?

Check if your exchange has been upgraded to 21CN status:

Simply put you'll only get faster speeds than what you can get with ADSL Max i.e. up to 8Meg with ADSL2 and ADSL2+ if the exchange is 21CN and/or has LLU providers.

With that attenuation, probably about 20mb on ADSL2+
