Hi I have overseas parents who have extremely slow internet. It could well be in need of a master filter. But before murdering us, could you please comment on these data

 

ADSL2PLUS

 

                                                   Downstream             Upstream
SNR Margin:                                          42.8               24.8 db
Line Attenuation:                                     9.3                2.1 db
Data Rate:                                              3072             509 kbps
Max Rate:                                              26708            1192 kbps
CRC:                                                       24                7

 





Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

first question is why is the SNR so high? they have pretty good attenuation at 9dB so should have good speed if the SNR was better. in NZ on ADSL it would be somewhere less than 12dB normally

 

where are your parents?

Without knowing the location, I would suggest that the sync rate is artificially set at 3000/500 by their ISP.

I'm turning red in the face.

 

Just found out they are using a BB service capped at 1 Mbps/ 300 kbps ... !

Quite an easy fix then - just give more money to the ISP money-mouth

Wow, that stinks of the bad-ol-day's in New Zealand before Telecom quivered in fear of the Commerce Commission. I didn't know such intentionally rubbish plans still existed in the developed world.

 

Do they live on an island somewhere, serviced via satellite?

Thanks that explains the sync rate being so much lower than attainable

Yes. Should've asked them about their "broadband" plan before looking into the modem stats
