HaHa, this time, length definitely isnt everything
BT even sent there hilariously named, and this is their offcial name: "the long line team" down to see me, they told me my line, although only 3km from exchange, qoute: "goes round the houses" and takes a far from as the crow flies route.
t'was fun, 3 grown men talking enthusiastically about line lengths and signal noise ratios and db margins!
one of the guys got so carried away, he even pulled out his panny toughbook and flirted for a wee while as he tried to convince me there was something amiss with the cabling in the house, even though i had only just re-wired with cat6, fitted an NTE5 prefiltered faceplate and removed the ringwire - the very procedures they had come down to do for me, to try and cure the problem
the only thing that actually solved it in the end was a rate cap downwards, but the before mentioned 'tweaks' helped it greatly in terms of stability
p.s. advice to all it affects, not sure about overseas, but here in the uk, if you have issues with your actual speed, you will see great stability and rate increase if you remove (if present the legacy 'ringwire' which acts as a noise magnet - and fit an nte5 prefiltered faceplate to your master 'test' socket - can be bought off ebay)

theres tweaking to be had in almost every avenue of life, even outside of audio
