Your exchange is flagged as amber which means there will be slowdowns during busy periods on the exchange due to congested VPs. BT are planning to update the VPs on 10/03/2004. Until that is done there may be nothing you or PlusNet can do to improve your speed.

See http://cgi.support.plus.com/exchanges/?exchange=longton

Have you tweaked your MTU values to see if it make any difference - note: the exchange issue may mean this is not conclusive.
