Re: Phoneline broadband providers (DSL)

but frequently too slow
Sounds more like an issue with the line from your home to the exchange, or with your line in the home. Not much you can do if it is the former and there is too much crosstalk and line attenuation to have a reliable high speed.

There are (were?) possibilities to see the actual DSL line quality when you log into the modems management console.

In the end DSL is a sophisticated hack and real feat of signal processing to bring high speed data on the plain old telephone system. Few might have imagined that DSL will bring speed of more than 10 MBits/s in so many homes. That is more than six times the speed of a T1? Who are you that you need that much privately, Tony Stark or what?
