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.

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.
