    SNR depends on two factors: a) the distance from the telephone exchange and b) the line quality. You can determine your distance from the exchange by your line attenuation. If it is more, then you are far away from the exchange. If it is less and you still have lower SNR then it is a line fault. If your friends house is near to your house, you can be sure that it is line fault.

    6bB. or below = Bad and will experience no line synchronisation and frequent disconnections
    7dB-10dB. = Fair but does not leave much room for variances in conditions.
    11dB-20dB. = Good with little or no disconnection problems
    20dB-28dB. = Excellent
    29dB. or above = Outstanding

    Get your line checked.
