PAYG Broadband speed

I have switched from broadband plus to PAYG £14.99 as I was told by PN that it would increase p2p download speeds (I was getting dialup type speeds). I have since carried out a speed test at The results are as follows: (PN speed checker has confirmed the following too)
Speed Test Results

Downstream 500.9 Kbps ( = 0.5 Mbps )
