Fibre speed significantly below estimate

Joined PlusNet 1 September using Windows 10 PC with wired connection direct to Plusnet hub, this directly wired into two socket Master.

Was advised at point of order that download speeds would be in range 57.2Mb to 75.1Mb

SpeedTest results show average is mid-30's download, 6 upload - so significantly lower.(ping latency in high 20's)

I've raised a ticket but line profile being shown on speedtest shows max attainable speed is 38Mb.

What's going on?

Ok did you sign up to the Fibre extra package ie the upto 76Mb or Fibre unlimited which is the upto 38Mb, because it looks like your on the Fibre unlimited.

@GuyLiddell Ok as it was Extra then you should be getting more than what your seeing, to me it looks like you have been put on Fibre unlimited by mistake so you might want to contact Plusnet CS, Live support is still available if you don't want to call they should be able to sort it out for you.
