I've been toying with the idea of a new piece of kit. Maybe not in the near future, but perhaps if and when ADSL2+ comes to my exchange (semi-rural, pop of 3000). There's no 21CN or ADSL2+ date set, and no fibre plans, as far as I know.
I get a sync of 8128, and average speeds of 6.2 Meg with pings in the low 40s.
My current kit is a Solwise SAR715 router modem with a 10/100 switch and on the original spec it was rates for 8000/640.
Would it be worth waiting to see what speeds the Solwise kit gets, if and when the exchange gets a speed up?
Would it be worth getting a new piece of kit to improve my current speeds/pings?
What kit would be available? Has to be wired. Modem/router combo, preferably with a 10/100 switch (so minimum of two ports). Also want NAT and have no real idea of any other specific spec. I'm not sure I need to change kit, but with my kit being 8+ years old, I'm just wondering if a change would get a better connection. Stats are:
7dB SNR / 30.0dB Att / 22 power (down)
10.0dB SNR / 18.5dB Att / 10 power (up)
