I will probably be making a new section hopefully soon about what features each modem has. What is the main things you look for when buying a modem?

Good suggestion, bit hard to monitor and compare them though.

What would be invaluable for many people is a detailed explanation of the ADSL parameters each modem provides to report on your current line sync speed i.e what does attenuation mean and why is it important, SNR ratio, coding gain etc.

Many people are easily misled into believing that the theoretical speeds advertised by providers is what will be delivered to them and want to know if the speed they are achieving is to be expected with their stats or what they can do to improve them if possible.

Especially in the past when providers listed it as 24,000/1000. Now they are required to say "up to".

What providers should do is provide you with the expected speed you should be able to reach, when they ask for your phone number to see what is avaiable in your area.
Be more up front about the speeds adsl1 compared with adsl2
