As it appears BT have abandoned the planned FTTP install for my area, I need to take steps to improve my ADSL as much as possible for the foreseeable.
I have Sky unlimited with the white Sky router (SR101) on a Sky LLU line and standard BT NTE5 socket. There are no extensions or bell wire connected.
I am approx 2.4km in a straight line from the exchange.
The main socket gets me:
Connection Speed = 5472 kbps down, 1023 kbps up
Line Attenuation = 49.0 dB down, 26.9 dB up
Noise Margin = 4.8 dB down, 6.6 dB up
The test socket oddly reported a lower connection speed...
Connection Speed = 4887 kbps down, 1023 kbps up
Line Attenuation = 49.0 dB down, 27.1 dB up
Noise Margin = 7.2 dB down, 6.6 dB up
I've read many posts about checking all the wiring, checking for microfilters etc and I've done all of that and it seems fine.
As I'm not using any extensions, is something like the Solwise ADSL faceplate worth buying?
I guess the question is, what else can I do (if anything) to make it run quicker?
Do these stats look OK?
Thanks for taking the time to read.
