I'm back on a product I had before, BT FTTC 76/20. However I'm not getting 72/19 like I was 3 years ago. I'm getting 51.3/19 - I know its only been 3 days and speeds may increase, however I am hovering around the downstream handback threshold.
I looks like I might be able to come out of BT FTTC if this continues - I'm very close to the cabinet and before BT was rock steady at 72/19. I realise in 3 yrs many more 76/20 users may have come on line the BT Availabilty checker says 80 -58.8 for grade A. Speedtest.net give a ping of 10ms.

Up time is low because I cannot clear the BT with Fon, its off on the BT Dashboard, but won't close on the HH6.
I've used the BT Fault service and the automated system agrees the speeds are low, but surprisingly it asks me to ring in, of course the moment I do that they'll see I'm in the magical training period and say they can't do anything.
Would changing router improve things (using one where I can control the noise margin) or should I just go for reversal under the downstream handback threshold rules?
Any advice most welcome.
