i have been battling years now with my adsl line at home, where it barely makes the 1024k speed, as i'm just to far away from the exchange, my exchange is Aasvoelkop all the way on the other side of the highway by Cresta, now that is quite a distance away. i badly need to upgrade the speed of this, as its to slow, i can barely stream a youtube video for longer than 10 seconds before buffering..
ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
Connection Speed 1024 kbps 512 kbps
Line Attenuation 63.5 db 31.5 db
Noise Margin 15.1 db 14.0 db
Recently I learned that Telkom installed a mini exchange just down the road from me in Weltevreden park, and was wondering how i can go about getting Telkom to move my line there so i can be closer, as that mini dslam/exchange is about 2 kms away from me?
not sure where to go and how to go about it, as ive been trying with Telkom without much success in anything i'm so fed up and the problem is there is no real other alternative for broadband where i live that is actually stable and worth looking at.
any help would be appreciated.
