It can take up to 14 days for your speed to change following an upgrade to Max DSL. Make sure that you disconnect your modem / router once a day during this period to allow the equipment in your exchange to work.

For myself I saw a sudden increase on day 4 from 2MB to about 4MB and then a gradual increase over the next week or so up to 6MB/6.5MB - with my router connecting at 8MB throughout.

Bookmark this link and check it each day. It show your Max Stable Rate as notified by BT to Plusnet, and when it goes up, so will your speed.
Regardless of your sync speed, your actual speed is limited by this Max Stable Rate and the equipment at the exchange determines this over time based on what it thinks your line can take.
