The more I read around about bb, ADSL, exchanges...the more overwhelmed I get with all the various router statistics and diagnostic figures about noise, attenuation etc. I would be grateful if someone could crunch my stats and let me know if what I am experiencing is normal for my exchange and ISP?
I used to have my line rental with BT and calls + bb with AOL. In Nov I took up AOL's deal of switching over my landline to them too and have one simple bill. So atm I pay £13 in line rental and £7 for unlimited bb and unlimited calls (i've been with them for years, hence the free upgrades to unlimited).
Since doing this, there was a week when there was no dialtone and incoming calls would give an 'engaged' tone...although ADSL would work. Several calls to tech support seemed to resolve that...apparently it was a problem at the exchange and not in my line.
I usually get 5-6 Mbps downstream...but since the switch I get 3-4 Mbps according to speedtests and sometimes I lose connection and speeds dwindle to 0.5-0.6 Mbps. What could be behind this?

BT ADSL broadband availability
You are connected to the Cambridge telephone exchange.
ADSL is available in your area
Your exchange is also enabled for ADSL Max services
Your exchange is also enabled for ADSL2+ services
According to BT Wholesale, houses at your postcode should be able to support
up to 2Mbps via ADSL
4Mbps or greater ADSL connection via ADSL Max
5.5Mbps or greater via ADSL2+
Standard ADSL RAG results
You can receive 2Mbps ADSL
You can receive 1Mbps ADSL
You can receive 512kbps ADSL
You can receive 256kbps ADSL
You are approximately 2.31km from the exchange. Note that this is the straight line distance - the actual cable length will be longer!
Is there any other diagnostic I should run to give you more info?
PS, running router stats at 1min intervals to show 3000 points per capture....will post tomorrow once it's got 24hrs of stats recorded.
