Should I move to a lower package?

My business broadband package is up to 76Mb, but my speeds are around 16Mb due to distance from exchange. 

Would it make sense for me to move to a cheaper package as I can't take full advantage of the speeds I am paying for?

If it's a Business package you need, then I seem to remember they are all based on the 80/20 offering.

@mothershiphq 

Have you looked lately at the following. It gives an idea of what speeds are currently available to you. WBC FTTP in the left hand column would be nice.

Fix

@mothershiphq  as @pjmarsh says , there is only one Business FTTC product, that is the up to 80/20.

From your attachement, downgrading to ADSL isnt really an option, the speed estimate is dire! and FTTP isn't an option (unless you've got very deep pockets for the install costs of FTTP On Demand)

edit: although the fact that your exchange is FTTP priority MIGHT indicate that Openreach are likely to be installing FTTP in the near future. I'd suggest checking the availability checker at regular intervals to see if WBC FTTP (Full Fibre) becomes available

You can check here to see if OpenReach have any plans for your area.

As a side note, I believe PlusNet do not currently offer FTTP on Business accounts though who knows what happens in the future.

@bmc thanks, I'd forgotten that...
