Your noise margin can't get any "better".

That's pretty much full speed.

Noise Margin, by the way, is how much "noise" the modem has up it's sleeve before selecting a lower speed.  So regardless of line conditions, it should be pretty much static - the terminating equipment (eg. DSLAM) at the exchange/cabinet will be set with a "target" Noise Margin.  6dB is about the lowest that this is generally set to, and would be considered an "aggressive" profile.
