Wondering if you can look at my modem, slingshot (Unlimited Plus Broadband) Not liking the speeds I'm getting on this connection. It Says ADSL2+ but I'm only getting a rate of 15/10 shouldn't it be more like 24/10

Balm its gone!

Your speed seems fine given the attenuation.

You should be seeing something in the vicinity of 14Mbps/900Kbps on a speedtest. Your sync stats tie in with your line attenuation which shows you being some distance from the cabinet or exchange.

If you're closer to the cabinet or exchange and/or showing within a 20Mbps zone on the Chorus coverage map the first thing will be to check your internal home wiring.

Like Cyril said your attenuation is a bit high, as if the line is over 2km from the exchange/cabinet. There's nothing wrong with that and you are getting very good connection speed for the apparent distance without too many errors. If you do have problems then try switching off the modem for at least a minute, and testing speed again without any bittorrent or similar software running. Do your test on a cable connected directly to the modem instead of wireless. Many speed issues we see are caused by dodgy or congested wireless.
