Hi guys, just got connected up today with Telecoms business 40GB plan, saweet, only to find out my downloads only go about 30kb/s, on ADSL2+ :(

I just left from a ADSL area with actrix and could download several hundred kb/s. This stinks. Espesh seeing as its a business plan which you would assume businesses would need at least semi decent speeds...

What can I do to fix this?

Any help or tips would be awesome.

This is me in the exchange zone, how does one find out how far you are away from the exchange?

My router stats, Im guessing the line attenuation is the problem?

Line Rate     371 Kbps     99 Kbps
Attainable Line Rate     576 Kbps     96 Kbps
Noise Margin     12.1 dB     11.2 dB
Line Attenuation     78.5 dB     35.0 dB
Output Power     14.8 dBm     7.4 dBm

Disregard this thread folks, I am a complete idiot tonight. Had the phone cable plugged in rather than the ADSL cable. Speeds have jumped up to a much better rate.
