Line Limitations

New DSLX Customer. Haven't received my modem from them yet, so I'm currently using a Westell 6100F. I'm on the Basic+ Plan. Would it be possible for me to get anything faster with my line stats? I highly doubt it.. but I just wanted to get some input.
Thanks!

While your noise margin looks good (23dB), the line attenuation (63dB) shows that your loop length will prevent you from getting better speeds.

I changed the phone cord and my attenuation went down by 2.5. Weird. I also changed from ADSL2+ Mode to ADSL2.

Can you check at the NID?

If a check at the NID shows significantly lower attenuation, you might consider wiring a home run.

I did check at the NID and got an attenuation reading of 63.5db downstream. I would get 60.5 at different jacks in the house and then I would get 62.5 if I rebooted the modem. The last time I checked it was at 60.5 and in ADSL2 mode. It would switch to ADSL2+ Mode when it was 62.5 or 63.5. I'll try with the modem that I'm getting from DSLX and see what happens. Highly doubt that there will be a difference.

Thanks for the suggestion!
