    low line attenuation is good means there is very little noise on the line, its SNR that you want to be nice and high. looking at that i'd guess about 4-5Mbp atleast with adslmax.

    with the attenuation like that id say you were in the exchange :D or very very close and more than likely you will get the full 8mb

    Attenuation is a measure of how much of the signal is getting to your house from the exchange. Therefore, the lower the attenuation, the stronger the signal. The SNR is a measure of how much of that signal is actually usable so of course, a higher SNR is better.

    See the FAQ, for one.
