Query about BT speed test

I just got fibre recently and although I was only estimated to get 29Mb I am getting 37Mb.  Out of curiosity I decided to run the BT Wholesale test and it's saying that I have an IP Profile of 47.06Mb down and 20Mb up (current up is 7.23Mb).

What would I need to do to get the faster speeds, or is it not worth the extra outlay?  The increased upload speed would be nice so I can upload my music to iTunes Match quicker :-)

Re: Query about BT speed test

Other than wireless problems that upload is as good as you are going to get

OK
First thing is that the download speed is limited by the product you are on - to get more download speed you need to pay more for Fibre Extra
Second - the upload speed is as good as you are going to get

Thanks for the help Oldjim, I'll stick with this for the time being as it's still faster than my old ADSL MAX connection :-)
