The 10.9 db target noise margin is costing you the speed.

http://www.coolwebhome.co.uk/calc/index.php?param=RG... shows the maths and gives estimated range for the line length, and also calculates based on your actual figures what you would get if the noise margin were set lower.

In short get onto TalkTalk to lower the target, assuming the line is stable and noise margin does not dip a lot once the sun sets.

Surprised you managed that speed (12) with your attenuation. When you moved ISP did you move from a LLU service back to BTw perhaps?

You'd never get much above 8 Meg on your present line with any ISP.

Hi,

Some suggestions are:

1. You have an issue with your extension wiring. Try the test socket...
2. Line fault... Try a quiet line test. Dial 17070, option 2. Any buzzing or crackling then report as a phone line fault

I hope these suggestions prove useful?

Never attribute to malice what can be adequately explained by stupidity
