✔ Best Answer
Increase data flow on a phone line? for DSL? I'm getting roughly 15mbps thru standard phone lines. Only 2 wires are live, the others are extras. I believe the phone wire standard is 24 gauge. I've checked my bandwidth using SpeedTest & it's generally right around 14.5mbps.

I assume you want to twist one extra wire onto each live wire? Using the calculator below, you'll find that 2 x 24 gauge = 1 x 21 gauge.

And if you check the following chart, you'll see that when doubling the wire gauge, the resistance is cut in 1/2. I know what that means electronically but not sure if it applies the same to data flow. Maybe someone with more background can chime in, but I doubt that if I twisted my wires together, my bandwidth would increase beyond the 15mbps I'm paying for. However, I'm guessing it might help if you're not reaching the limit you're paying for.

It's for a DSL internet. I'm in Oregon. And was just curious if I connected the other two wires to the 2 live wires if it would increase my data flow

Do not connect extra wires to the live wires on a DS-Line !!!
It will imbalance the DSL line causing distortion resulting in lower speed.

If you have more than one telephone outlet, all the outlets should be connected to the DSL Modem Tel. socket. The DSL socket should be connected strait from the incoming telephone line (street/pole/hub/cabinet) without any other parallel wires connected to it.
