Slow speeds all of a sudden

I've noticed many other people having speed problems and i did post on someone elses thread on sunday but thought it be better to start my own.

I used to have real good speeds, i connected at 3.9Mbit - 5.9Mbit and got speeds like 300kb/s - 400kb/s even higher i think but now i get low low speeds peak and off peak.

I'm using Speedtouch USB ADSL Modem
Plusnet Package Premium Option 2
Well within my usuage allowance

Speed Test Results:

Speeds are looking better even though at 4:20pm they were at 400kb/s.

Your High-speed Broadband Service

Your current broadband speed is 1500 Kbps


Which can not be right because i was getting good speeds, even early in 2007 however for the last week and a bit i have been getting these poor speeds.

I also have no adware or spyware on my PC.

I'm not that far away from the exchange.

Its not just my PC i have connectec modem to my laptop and got same speeds too.

Hopefully someone could help and sort this problem out for me.

Thanks
