I'm pretty pleased at that, as I have a very poor phone line
A recent change to ADSL2+ seems to have helped considerably, before I was only on 1Meg ADSL, and that tended to be lost for hours at a time - I was never informed of the change, but reliability seemed much better, and my router now reports it as ADSL2+.
The router gives my connection as:
and it's been connected for 8 days, 14 hours, and 56 minutes. Not that long ago it would never work during the day at all, and only seemed to connect after 9:00PM
HOME: 1273 and 405
SCHOOL:1050 and 850
It is part of a package deal where I get Internet, local phone, and VOIP for a fixed fee. The last time I checked, to get more speed I would have to buy the services separately which would be a bump of about $50 a month for the next level of Internet service.
Isn't it amazing that you can have such a high data rate on an ordinary phone line?
In the '90s I measured the audio frequency response of two telephone lines at work because the sound was muffled. 3kHz was down 12dB! I complained to Bell and they said it meets the spec' of -7.5dB for one-way.
Then I made equalizers for boardroom tele-confrence systems to boost 3kHz to make the sound crisp and clear. Every one I demo'd was sold.
