Hi

Having asked Martin to reduce my profile to 8mbps and here are the results:

Appreciate some interpretation.

DSL Status: Connected
DSL Modulation Mode: MultiMode
DSL Path Mode: Interleaved
Downstream Rate: 1472 kbps
Upstream Rate: 384 kbps
Downstream Margin: 6 db
Upstream Margin: 19 db
Downstream Line Attenuation: 54 db
Upstream Line Attenuation: 15.5 db
Downstream Transmit Power: 0
Upstream Transmit Power: 0

DSL Status: Connected
DSL Modulation Mode: G.dmt
DSL Path Mode: Interleaved
Downstream Rate: 1440 kbps
Upstream Rate: 384 kbps
Downstream Margin: 9 db
Upstream Margin: 20 db
Downstream Line Attenuation: 53 db
Upstream Line Attenuation: 15.5 db
Downstream Transmit Power: 0
Upstream Transmit Power: 0

I also ran a speed test at 7:30pm:
down 890kb/s
up 325kb/s

OK. So barring an alternative modem it seems as though you cannot support any speeds greater than just under 1500kbps. Perhaps wait to see if Exetel staff can suggest anything else.

It sounds paranoid, but I think my speeds are slower than they were previously. I am noticing in general browsing. In the past I was able to browse and d/l will no noticeable effect. After reducing my profile, the speed has decreased to an unacceptable level. In the past, it may be been slower than what other people were expecting, but it doesn't appear to be the case
