Why Oh Why Oh Why ! 7.3mb but actually 500k

So I have been on Maxdsl for a week now, previously on a fast 2mb connection however since being on max my speed fluctuates between half a mb and 1mb

https://portal.plus.net/my.html?action=stable_rate says 2mb
even though it has never reached this and even though my modem connection has never dropped below 7.mb


Can anyone tell me will my speed ever go back up?

Have you run the BT SpeedTest a few times to try to find out if you are suffering from contention ... it maybe there are a lot of people on your exchange and the backhaul needs to be upgraded ... well if BT think so, so PN nor you can do much about this, unless the exchage has an LLU provider too. Sad
