Line stats

  jellyhead 22:55 05 Feb 2008

ok I got some line stats, don't know if they are good or bad, if some one could explain that would be great.
speed up 1152 down 288
line attenuation up 53db down 31.5db
noise margin 14.1db down 25db
I'm on 2meg broadband and about 2.7km from exchange, hoping to try and improve things if possible.
Many thanks

one test doesn't really amount to much in giving you a fair idea of your average line speed, try at different times of the day with different progs, you will be surprised at the results...
