BT line checker

Hi
Just noticed something - wondering if any one else has noticed it or can check.
I'm on 21CN now and having problems - speed is much slower now.  Since this change I've spotted that the BT checker as downgraded the estimated speed I can get.
In the ADSLmax days estimate was 4mb - was getting 5.5mb.
Then I moved to the LLU product (6.5 to 7.2mb) - and now back on BT 21CN where the estimate is now 3mb and getting (at the moment) 3.5mb. (was down to 2.5mb).
Has anyone else noticed this?
Phil

Re: BT line checker

For me it reports speeds that are in line with what I have experienced.
ADSL up to 2Mbps
ADSL max 5.5Mbps
ADSL2+ 8Mbps or greater

Out of interest - I am not on the trial - I checked my results

Your exchange is ADSL enabled, and our initial test on your line indicates that your line should be able to have an ADSL broadband service that provides a fixed line rate up to 2Mbps.
Our test also indicates that your line currently supports a potential ADSL Max broadband line rate of 2.5Mbps or greater.
Your exchange is planned to have ADSL2+ by 28th February 2010. Our test also indicates that your line currently supports a potential ADSL2+ broadband line rate of 2.5Mbps or greater.
The interesting bit about this is the first line because under the old attenuation rules I could only get 1Mbps
Actual totally stable sync is just under 4Mbps
