I'm hoping someone more learned in the field of ADSL can enlighten me on this. The site http://www.adsl2exchanges.com.au lists me as being ~4KM as the crow flies to my closest exchange, and gives me an estimated cable length of ~4.7KM's, I applied to get my existing (TPG) ADSL service relocated to this address, in full knowledge and expectation of fair to poor ADSL 2+ speeds. After a lengthy saga to get my line connected properly (see http://forums.overclockers.com.au/showpost.php?p=15099858&postcount=14), I get home today to find my modem showing all systems go. My crappy netgear gives me the following stats. ADSL Link Downstream Upstream Connection Speed 23226 kbps 1012 kbps Line Attenuation 12.0 db 5.8 db Noise Margin 8.0 db 8.2 db Speedtest.net confirms that it's not lying about the speed. Various downloads from around the net confirm that it's accurate enough. I've worked in a building where I could literally piss on the exchange, and not seen sync speeds this high. can anyone suggest what is happening?
