The day after I posted the above my DSL service went down... then came back up with some AWESOME signal levels. Walked down the street and sure enough a couple techs were working at the box; said they were moving ~150 DSL users over.
Took CBT a day or so to shake everything out, but I now have the full 5M service with the following signal levels:
Transceiver Information Downstream Path Upstream Path
DSL Speed (Kbits/Sec) 5051 764
Margin (dB) 31.0 13.0
Line Attenuation (dB) 10.0 5.5
Transmit Power (dBm) 10.9 9.7
Do it. The speed increase will be worth it. I don't see the pricing going up in any significant way anytime in the near future where the "Priced For Life" would be something worth keeping over doubling your speed.
Glad to see they're rolling out more FTTN (fiber to the node) so DSL customers receive faster and more reliable service. CBT has really been aggressive with fiber as of late. -- Photos By Greg Strong
