ADSL RAM avail­able soon… I hope

I am wait­ing since about two years that my ADSL line gets switched to rate adap­tive mode (ADSL RAM). This would allow my modem to try to use the line until its lim­it, instead of the fixed rate it has now. I can not get a high­er fixed rate (2 MBit down­stream), because the line is too long. My modem tells me that it could do a lot more (less than 8 MBit down­stream). I do not expect that the modem is able to ful­ly pre­dict what it can do when it is allowed to max-out the line, but I expect that it is more than the 2 MBit I have at the moment.

Yes­ter­day a tech­ni­cian of the line-provider I know told me that they are now allowed to switch lines to ADSL RAM (at least in my region). Great news. I direct­ly told he shall have a look if he can switch my line. It will be inter­est­ing to see what I am actu­al­ly able to push/pull over the line… and if/when the line will be switched (it will be done the offi­cial way by one of his col­leagues).
