Very poor ADSL2+ speed

Level 1a


I have been experiencing some very poor download speeds of late. At present speedtest is showing less than 1MB\sec. It is much closer to .5MB\sec. I have experienced much faster speeds using the current modem \ PC \ line in etc. Nothing has changed since experiencing much faster speeds. I would expect something in the 3-5MB\Sec rage would be considered normal as that is what speed i am referring to when i say i have had much higher speeds previously. I can see others have \ are having a similar issue.

I have been an account holder for many many years. And a happy one at that. However of late with the low speeds it is raising a question of "am i getting the best service available?"

Can you please advise further on the speed issues and assist in trying to get back to a half reasonable speed. 

Thanks in Advance.
