Unfortunately not all telephone lines are created equally, and so many of us will need our ADSL and ADSL2+ to run with a different set of parameters to the default. Be who use ADSL2+ have made available a range of settings in their customer web portal to let their users tweak their connection.
Giving control to the customer can reduce the work load on support staff and allows people to try out various combinations at will, or even tweak their connection to suit what their main activity will be on a specific day.
To some extent these tweaks are not worthwhile until you have tidied up the telephone wiring in your home if searching for extra speed. Items like the ring wire and a spiders web of telephone extension wiring can easily result in the connections performance degrading a lot during the hours of darkness and with longer nights rapidly approaching, now is the time to tweak your broadband connection. As well as just removing unused telephone wiring, there are three main other things you can do remove the ring wire, fit an ADSL/ADSL2+ faceplate, or fit an I-Plate.
