Currently I have a 2mb/s ADSL connection. I signed up for the service more than five years ago. Has technology improved much during that time to allow for greater speed using the same wires? The building I live in is quite old and the lines aren't very good. They weren't able to support 6mb/s service back then. Now I notice that the lowest speed offered by my telco is 10mb/s. Even that would be a serious improvement over what I have now.
Here are the stats from the modem:
Modulation: G.992.5 Annex A
Line Attenuation (Up/Down) [dB]: 10,5 / 15,5
SN Margin (Up/Down) [dB]: 31,5 / 29,0
UPDATE: After some haggling with my telco, my connection is now 10mb/s.
