Factors Effecting Speed

Hi,
I would like to know all the factors that can effect the speed at which my DSL runs at. Is there a page with a detailed breakdown so I can understand exactly why at times (off-peak) I am getting such poor performance. And also if there is anything I can check (apart from restarting my router) to help ensure i'm getting the quickest speeds possible.

Have a look at http://www.kitz.co.uk/adsl/adsl.htm - especially the bit about MTU, followed by a look at the PlusNet help pages.

I'd forgotten about that.... I'll add a link in the draft of mine.
