8 MB is slower than 2 MB

Since my line has been upgraded from 2 MB to 8MB my actual download speed has decreased.

My router reports these speeds:
DownStream Connection Speed 8128 kbps
UpStream Connection Speed 448 kbps

The actual speed reported by the speed checker hardly goes near 1.5 MB

Before the upgrade it was a steady 2.MB

Any advice out there?

Thanks in advance,
Bert

Yep I am exactly the same, I've got ticket 20740229 raised

Just ran http://www.speedtester.bt.com and got the following:

"Your configured download throughput speed for this service is 1500 k"

My Router is showing the following info:

ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
Connection Speed 3488 kbps 448 kbps
Line Attenuation 42.0 db 20.5 db
Noise Margin 11.6 db 20.0 db

Seems really slow ....

I've checked all my phone socket internal wiring and have tightened a few screws ...

The max I could get is around 3.5MB ... which is much better than 1.5MB

PlusNet ... Help please
