[DSL] DSL Repeater big difference for all you last mile folks!

Hello All, I had a good experience with a frontier tech today. He installed a loop extender repeater, and what a surprise to see my stats improve considerably and keep my current speed. Let the stats speak for them selves. At over 3 miles or more, I think I am doing fairly well thank you frontier Tech!

Before.....
D/S Atten 67.7
D/S SNR 5.9

After.....
D/S Atten 49.3
D/S SNR 24.2
2624 kbps down
448 kbps up

I have to say frontier came through for me today the tech even offered to follow up and possibly raise my down speed to an even 3000kbps if those numbers stay within
Reasonable limits. Bottom line to all you last mile customers you may want to consider asking your local tech about the advantages of loop extenders (repeaters) for customers with unreliable or
Problematic connections. Here is the wiki link for more information on repeaters for adsl.
