line set to 20mb?

i recently joined plusnet and i've had no issues at all with the connection but the speeds have never changed from a 'max throughput of 20,000kbps' on the Fritzbox 7490 router dsl stats. The attainable rate is often a lot higher than this but the connection never increases.
would someone be able to check if my line to see what its set at?
i did have a line fault fixed by bt openreach about a month prior to joining plusnet so i'm not sure if it's still locked at a rate set during the fault?
thanks for any help

Does this vary much?
Can you post your DSL stats?

These stats?
attainable line speed will go as high as ~25,000 but never lower than ~20,000. MAx attainable hasn't moved since the line break that i mentioned previously
i dont live far from the cab but its really poor aluminium lines with a number of strange connections and the openreach engineers just tend to sigh when they are in our area so i know it isnt going to get much better.
