Upgraded to ADSL2+, looking for a new modem/router

[link to this post]
Hi everyone.

My exchange was recently upgraded and my broadband package has been upgraded to ADSL2+ Annex M.

I'm looking to possibly get a new modem/router. I'm currently using a ZyXEL P-660R-D1. I'm not doing anything extreme with the line but I will be streaming some content online (Hence the Annex M). Aside from downloading things now and then through P2P sources and that I only require as good a sync/throughput rate as possible.

I've got some stats from my line which I'll paste below, the line length is ~900m


BRAS Profile(CVLAN Rate): 18312

Profile Info: WBC 160K - 24M Medium delay (INP 1) 3dB Downstream, UC Medium delay (INP 1) 6dB Upstream (ADSL2+ Annex M)

xDSL Status Test Summary
Sync Status: Circuit In Sync
General Information
NTE Status: NTE Power Status: PowerOn Bypass Status:

Upstream DSL / Downstream DSL
Loop Loss: 7.1 / 15.1
SNR Margin: 13.5 / 3.3
Errored Seconds: 0 0
HEC Errors: 0
Cell Count: 371 / 371
Speed: 1902 / 18368

Maximum Stable Rate (KBPS): 19296 Fault Threshold Rate (KBPS): 15437
Mean Time Between Retrains (Seconds): 86400 Mean Time Between Errors Upstream (Seconds): 4320
Indicative Line Quality: G Mean Time Between Errors Downstream (Seconds): 1271


I'm also looking to get interleaving turned off on the line since it looks like it's on from above. Does anyone know if turning it off on the upstream makes any difference?

Many thanks
