Annex M is an optional specification in ITU-T recommendations G.992.3 (ADSL2) and G.992.5 (ADSL2+), also referred to as ADSL2 M and ADSL2+ M. This specification extends the capability of commonly deployed Annex A by more than doubling the number of upstream bits. The data rates can be as high as 12 or 24 Mbit/s downstream and 3 Mbit/s upstream depending on the distance from the DSLAM to the customer's premises. The main difference between this specification and Annex A is that the upstream/downstream frequency split has been shifted from 138 kHz up to 276 kHz (as in Annex J), allowing upstream bandwidth to be increased from 1.4 Mbit/s to 3.3 Mbit/s, with a corresponding decrease in download bandwidth.

Kessel-Lo (near Leuven) and Sint-Truiden. Now it is available in and around various large cities and city centers. The Swedish ISP Telia [3] has offered Annex M on their ADSL2+ 24Mbit connections since October 2006.992. with better equipment it's possible to reach 2. Since October 2006.

The Belgian ISP Dommel(Schedom) [6] Recently offers ADSL2+ Annex M (24Mbit/s down and 3 Mbit/s up) in their "cityconnect" package in the city of Leuven (on their own DSLAMs). The company reports that customers can see is now testing Annex M on both single-pair and pair-bonded "Fusion" ADSL2+ service. Nildram [8].

Two other cities have been announced for the second quarter of 2008. Cambridge Matrix [10] and Claranet [11] have recently started offering enhanced upstream to their customers.992.5 Annex M 2 Deployment Santa Rosa. ISP Nebula [5] also offers Annex M on some of their more expensive packages. This is actioned from a support ticket and changes the customers connection from ADSL2+ Annex A to ADSL2+ Annex M. the Swedish ISP Bredbandsbolaget [2] offers a service called "Bredband 20 Pro" with 20 MBit/s down. The British LLU ISP Be Un Limited [7] offers a feature on their "pro" package called "Upload Plus". 8/3 Mbit.992. See also • ADSL2 • ADSL2+ External links • ITU-T Recommendation G. Telenor and TDC offers up to 2 Mbit upload using this technology. Usually upstream speeds between 2-2.
