Very slow upload speed

Recently moved house, a new line was installed by Openreach on the second attempt (they ended up having to fix an underground cable) 13 days ago. Since then the download speeds have varied between 1 and 11Mbps, but usually around 9 or 10. The problem is the upload speed, which varies between zero and 0.05Mbps. So obviously something is seriously wrong.
I'm using the same equipment as I used at my previous address, apart from a new rj11 cable. The router is plugged directly into the master socket. A quiet line test reveals no noise. The numbers I'm posting below don't mean much to me but perhaps someone can make some sense of it, I'd be grateful.

Re: Very slow upload speed

Looking at the line it's likely to need an engineers appointment, can you run through the faults checker at so we can get that tested and raised.
