ADSL 2+
« on: March 02, 2012, 21:17 »
My exchange is being upgraded later this month to ADSL2+. Any thought on this, is it a good move to go across, do I have a choice and what speed should I expect?

My readings from my router are

Current DSL Connection:
   Down    Up
Rate:    7616 kbs    448 kbs
Max Rate:    6200 kbs    980 kbs
Noise Margin:    4.0 dB    23.0 dB
Attenuation:    41.3 dB    26.0 dB
Output Power:    19.7 dBm    11.9 dBm

Protocol:    G.DMT Annex A
Channel:    Interleaved
DSLAM Vendor Information    Country: {3840} Vendor: {ALCB} Specific: {0 }
ATM PVC:    0/38

Rate Cap:    6200 kbs
Attenuation @ 300kHz:    41.3 dB
Uncanceled Echo:    -12.4 dB    Ok
VCXO Frequency Offset:    0.0 ppm    Ok
Final Receive Gain:    20.5 dB    Ok
Excessive Impulse Noise:    0    Ok

I usually achieve round about 6000kbs.

It should be good news, I'd have though - but depends on how botched the job is done.

Go for it, Den. No-one can predict the speed accurately, so try it and see. If it doesn't work, you can be re-modulated back to ADSL, but retain the higher bandwidth allowance.

Tuesday 3rd April is the big day. 

Question: Will my router just re-sync or will I have to re-boot. How long should it take to stabilise and give me a true picture of what the future holds?

No good asking me, I'm still on Max.  :)

Good luck, though, Den, hope it all goes OK.  :thumb:
