    At what frequency is attenuation from exchange to customers' premises
    specified or measured.

  3. Oh yes, though why I have had to wait 30 months to be connected is not so

    How far out were you ? I'm showing 63dB

  5. The line is 6.1 km long. When I first applied in March 2002, I was told the
    line loss was 60.2db. I re-applied last year for the extended reach trial and
    was told the loss was 63db

    I am using a Speedtouch 330 it does not report any SNR and attenuation
    statistics - that I can find! In practical terms the connection works fine.
    The modem does record some errors.

    Have been over the 60dB for last 2 years - 68dB 3.5dB s/n at old house,
    at new house for the last 9 months - 65dB with 5.5 s/n.

    Mine has always been over 60db!!

    It runs at about 61 when the weather is fine and around 62-63 at other times
    (like now). I guess I chose a good time to sign up, I also took everything off
    the line that might cause interferece (like my Phillips DECT phone).

    I've never had any problems, speed is good, no line drops. I'm with PlusNet in
    case you are interested.

    Me too.
    Currently running at 62dB, and wondering if a new faceplate might take me
    below 60dB for 1Mb. (18dB margin.)

    Yes, but only just.

    2.5 years I've been waiting to be able to get ADSL since my exchange
    was activated! (during which time I have applied on three occasions).

    Now when I finally get it, my router is reporting 61dB attenuation
    (downstream - 31.5 upstream), and SNR of 23/21 down/up.
