New ADSL2+ customer - very slow speeds

Level 1c



My internet was activated on Monday but since then our speeds have made it close to unusable. Speedtests via ethernet with wireless disabled average about 0.8Mbps, highest has been about 1.4. The TPG DSLAM map puts us ~3km from the exchange but from the averages we should still be expecting about 5-6x what we have now.
