Upstream line rate (kbit/s) :1005 Downstream line rate (kbit/s) :11441 Maximum upstream rate (kbit/s) :993 Maximum downstream rate (kbit/s) :12868 Upstream noise safety coefficient (dB) :12.6 Downstream noise safety coefficient (dB) :12.8 Upstream interleave depth :0 Downstream interleave depth :0 Line standard :ADSL_2plus Upstream line attenuation (dB) :14.4 Downstream line attenuation (dB) :25 Upstream output power (dBmV) :12.2 Downstream output power (dBmV) :19.2 Downstream interleave depth :None   i dont want it  installed and get lest than adsl 2+   will my line be ok ??

i believe you are entitled to roll back if its not better than your current speeds

 

but if you are indeed only 5-800m away your ADSL stats are pretty poor so you might have a wiring issue there causing the poor connection

 

a master filter/tidy up of your house wiring may help

if thats the case then VDSL probably wont offer you anything better

 

can always ask your ISP for a prequal though to get an indication of your attenuation and expected speeds

The cable to you may not take the route you think it does which may put it into VDSL distances of approx 900m or less.

As above.

 

Your downstream attenuation of 25dB suggests a line length of 1800m*, and a predicted VDSL maximum speed of 18 Mbps.

 

EDIT:  * line length is usually greater than distance "as the crow flies".

because they increased the range for VDSL due to the upgrade to the 998 band plan. this increased the maximum allowable attenuation to 15dB
