I am looking into upgrading my DSL 6 mbs service, so I have been reading a lot of links from here from previous discussions, and am certainly not teck smart.
Bell fiber comes to a junction box about 2km away from here, then it is old copper to my house in the county.
Long story short:
I went into my router settings and did a analysis under the maintenance section snd this is some of what it said: ( all downstream figures)
HILN SCALE. 1632
LOOP ATTENUATION. DB. 31.5
SIGNAL ATTENUATION.DB. 31.5
SNR MARGIN DB. 6.3
ATTAINABLE RATE. KBPS. 10952
OUTPUT POWER DBM. 14.8
I also checked my friends router (same) too and the numbers were almost the same, 3 lots away.
Are there any other relelavent numbers I am missing? I can't post screenshots here.
It looks like 10 kbs would be my max ( under ideal conditions).
Bell office claims I could get 19kbs, but the guy working on the box says 7 kbs.
Any suggestions or observations based on my numbers?
