Thanks to swift response from F9 and BT, a noisy line has now been fixed.
How long will it be before my connection speeds up again? is reporting

Re: Line fault fixed - still slow

It's likely that the speeds will increase naturally due to the nature of MaxDSL. As long as you sync at that same speed for 3 days it will increase to a profile of 5000 as per the table on this page.
