Re: [speed/latency] upgrade provisioned at 1.5, how do stats loo

You are OK at 1.5 Mps but not much more. Notice downstream margin is only 8.5 dB. Upstream is fine. That that would be easy to upgrade except Verizon couple downstream and upstream together.

It is always worth a try to see if something within your residence is degrading performance as that is something you can fix.

Try connecting the modem directly to the phone company NID test jack and see if stats improve.

Another option it to try to get switched from ADSL to ADSL2. ADSL2 does better job on marginal lines. Verizon does not offer it so may be a hard sell. Given your attenuation you are about 15,000 feet. I'm actually a little surprised they were willing to give you 1.5.
