Talk Talk stats - Room for improvement?


[link to this post]
 
A friend has Talk Talk and just for fun I've taking a note of his stats just to see how they look (for those of you who do a lot of stat thinking).

Exchange

Netgear DG834G v4 (wired connection)

Sync 4395 / 893

Attenuation 53.5 dB / 28.0 dB

Noise Margin 4.4 dB / 4.8 dB


TBB speedtests of 36xx kbps (3.5 Meg) / 0.7 Meg upload


Given that it's an ADSL2+ connection, I just wondering if there's a likely hood of getting anything more from the connection? More than 0.5 Meg, that is. Anything less isn't worth it. I see there's an RFS for FTTC, so can one assume the FTTC speeds will be far better for such a line?

Ta.

At that attenuation 2400Kbps to 4450Kbps is the range to expect I would say, so unlikely to get more unless you can drop the attenuation

Speed looks OK for ADSL2+, but forcing ADSL2 only may gain you the desired 0.5 Meg.

In reply to a post by MrSaffron:

by dropping down to ADSL2 only grin

If you think that is what that will do, then free to think that

Cheers Andrew.

Is there a basic method for calculating FTTC speeds from existing ADSLmax/2/2+ speeds (distance etc.)?

No, cuz FTTC eliminates all the copper from exchange to cab.
