Looks fine. I have similar downsteam attenuation and am current syncing at over 12000 kbps with a Linksys WAG325N. My ZyXEL would only ever do 5000 kbps or so on ADSL1 profile.

Spark FibreMAX using Mikrotik CCR1009-8G-1S-1S+. UAP, UAP AC Pro, UAP AC Pro Mesh, Apple TV 4, Apple TV 4K, iPad Air 1, iPhone XR, VodaTV Gen 2. If it doesn't move then it's data cabled.

There are a lot of conditions - such as your line noise/health or modems. Some modems are not as ADSL2+ ready as they make themselves out to be....

Telecom has commissioned the ADSL2+ equipment in many exchanges, but they have not yet enabled the ADSL2+ speed (this is a comment from XNet themselves, who is my ISP as well).  Apparently it will happen all at the same time when they officially launch ADSL2+, which makes sense for marketing purposes.  I think the launch will be around the middle of the year.

I think that is false advertising, because my line will do 11Mbps (reported by modem) but I only get 7.3Mbps.  On the other hand, ADSL2+ is not yet launched so they can limit you to ADSL1 speeds.

Note that your speed will not double when they enable ADSL2+ profiles, but it will be faster for most people.
