Poor/inconsistent DL speedtests

Hi gang... I've just switched to fibre (nearly 2 weeks ago) and my computer knowledge isn't what it used to be so please forgive my niaveness. I've been doing a number of speed tests at various times of the day and was just wondering if its usual for the wireless results to be so average and also inconsistent. I'm on the 38/19 package and have been getting dl speeds as low as 4-5mbps whilst ul is usually always consistantly in the mid teens, more often than not its faster than the DL speeds. Most of the DL tests seem to be around 10-16mbps and that just seems very pedestrian and is disappointing. In fact I've not seen speeds I got on my first test of 29mbps DL since.
I've always tried to do the tests the same ie everything else turned off, same distance from router. The wired test seemed OK but I read that other people on wireless tests are getting much higher results.  I just don't seem to be getting any benefit over ADSL, am I expecting too much?
