Speed slightly lower than estimated: is it worth worrying about?

Moved to FTTC around a month ago.Before I moved to FTTC, the prediction was that I should get 65 meg.

 

Looking on PlusNet it says:

Estimated line speed:80Mb (This may vary between 64.9Mb and 80Mb) - Checked on 2016-07-04 18:12:34

Current line speed:61.2 Mb

My router (Plusnet Hub 1) currently reports the line speed as

Downstream: 61.91 Mbps
Upstream: 18.92 Mbps

 

... that speed has been amazingly stable since day 1, and the internet performance is generally good (slows a bit occasionally, at peak times).

 

Should I be particularly worried that I'm a few meg lower than predicted?

I would not worry about present speeds , but would watch peak time slowdowns
