IP Profile dropped significantly

Problems started occuring around 3 weeks ago. IP Profile use to be 448 upstream, 8192kbps downstream. Now the numbers have significantly dropped too 192 Kbps Upstream, 4224 Kbps Downstream. Ping to first hop has increased from 8-10 to 20-24. Effectively my ping has doubled.
No hardware changes, no problems listed in my area.
 Download speedachieved during the test was - 3398 Kbps
 For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 1200-4000 Kbps.
 Additional Information:
 Your DSL Connection Rate :4224 Kbps(DOWN-STREAM), 192 Kbps(UP-STREAM)
 IP Profile for your line is - 3726 Kbps
Upload speed achieved during the test was - 140 Kbps
 Additional Information:
 Upstream Rate IP profile on your line is - 192 Kbps
My speeds use to be double those.


On your connection, its not possible for the IP profile to drop as its always 88.2% of your sync speed.  If you type in Google 88.2% of 4320 it will give you your IP profile in decimals points. .
Has your speed always been this low? What was it previously like.
If you dial 17070 and press option 2 do you hear any noise? Satic, hissing crackles etc.. ?
Have you tried changing microfilters?
Also maybe a speed tweak to increase your speed
As standard, the bell wire should be taken out of any master or extension socket as this can reduce the amount of interference your broadband can pick up and sometimes fixes the problem, see how to remove it here http://bit.ly/4LEKJg .  Make sure you remove it from master and any other sockets in the house
