Well, I paid for 25 down and 10 up, so I suppose I should be happy with those conservative estimates. :3

 Thats kinda stupid that you dont have a better download speed.

It's because he's probably using ADSL, which sacrifices upload for download speeds.

This is my private line, but the family/household use a seperate 80Mb connection, which is nice to have as a back-up. :)

I'm hoping to build a dual WAN router and bridge the two for redundency and load balancing.

Definitely on Virgin Media Cable Broadband, ADSL speeds in the UK max out at about 25mb/s download so that's way out of that range. Upload speeds a bit slow though thats only thing not overly impressed about with that speedtest download speeds blisteringly fast for UK!

Never thought i'd see a plusnet speedtest on here haha :) and nice speed for UK ADSL too

Plusnet say I should get like 19MB/s download speed, but I get no where near that.

 

It is weird that I got 10MB/s download on the test as I am only able to reach 1.4Mb/s most of time.

Maybe an ISP like Sky BB or BT would be able to give you speeds nearer 19MB/s. Reason I say this is I have a friend on Plusnet and like you he suffers massive slow downs in speed to say around 1.5mb/s even when the exchange we are on is easily capable of 20MB/s, I know this as I get around 16MB/s on sky unlimited in same housing estate while his maxes out at 6MB/s on Plusnet unlimited. But the whole reaching 10MB/s thing was probably down to a false burst speedtest or very little congestion on your local exchange at that time :)

EDIT: Just read again that you were on BT and was slower so wouldn't recommend that route again ;)

I also had problems with sky as well, but not as bad as BT; with BT download speeds could not even get up to a single KB!

 

What I think is causing the slow down is the fact that we use telephone connections and these telephones wires are very thin, not to mention that these particular telephone connections were made in the 1970's; we are waiting for fiber optics to be installed, which will never happen since the government hates us, the people from the Northen areas of England for some reason.

This is crap speeds for me when I'm paying $60.00 to $70.00 (with Bell's $20.00 add on for unlimited usage) for 5 Mbps download and 800 Kbps upload. So stupid too is that I will never get Fibre internet or TV on my street but yet the street next to me gets it. Reason being is because I have the old old version of the box (that the wires connect to then get split up to the houses) and they won't replace it until it gets damage (because no new houses are being built). Stupid Bell Canada keeps saying, "We're expanding our Fibre Optic to different areas each day." When I ask when will I be getting Fibre on my street.
 
If you're wondering what Bell Canada internet plan I have, here is my plan. http://www.bell.ca/Bell_Internet/Products/Bell_Internet_5

 

I feel your pain. Bell's internet is ridiculously overpriced for what you get.

Western Sydney's internet is overpowered.
