I got a bit confused in my memory of your opening post re your use if ADSL then FTTC. The fact yo are now on FTTC in fact makes the rest of mine more relevant
Banding is what Openreach DLM uses instead of changing the sync-time noise margin in the way the BT Wholesale one does on ADSLx. See BT SIN 498
For some reason unknown, early'ish in 2016 60000kbps banding was applied to my line. In November/December I decided to change my kit for a few reasons, but a number of experiments caused that to be lowered to 55000 then 49000. The Draytek Vigor being directly involved in the drop to 49000kbps.
In the evening of December 17, as I said earlier, I got this Billion working. However unusually DLM lowered my banding again at 10am next morning to 45000kbps. Changes atre usually made overnight.
Satuerday>Sunday night it jumped it straight back up to 55000kbps, where it still is. Now a month on, and I'm hoping in another 4-5 weeks DLM will remove all banding. That's the sort of timescale it seems to work to when easing off. My Max Attainable is well over 66000kbps, where with the HG612s it was always below 60000. Which made the original 60000 banding very odd in the first place, as the sync was a solid actual 60000 as a result having never reached 58000 before.
Re your setup, I assume you realise it should be PTM not ATM, but you say you are unsure re PPPoA/PPPoE. It is PPPoE for VDSL2
