No, because the product you are on is standard ADSL & you are already synced at the fastest possible speed for that technology.

It may or may not make a difference if you ever move onto an ADSL2+ service. Check Samknows (1st link of my sig) regularly as BE/O2 are getting around a lot of exchanges.

Looks like you have a pretty decent line so you may not need to remove it at all (even on ADSL2+).


ok cool just that i got o2 llu in my area but im stuck on home access as they dont know how to migrate me over to 16meg with out downtime

What a load of dribble.

By migrate they really mean switch over.

Like said above they actually need to physically move you to their llu equipment in your local exchange.

I would say with a line att of 20dB you will get the full 16meg service.

I would only recommend removing the bellwire to gain some extra speed if you went for a service like BE's up to 24meg where lowering the interference of the bellwire would gain you a slight downstream gain.
