A comparison point :-
BT Recorded Line Length to Exchange (m): 4123
This is a 21CN line.
The current Downstream BRAS rate is: 3.78 Mbps (6 dB SNR, 54 dB attn)
The current Upstream BRAS rate is: 0.45 Mbps
Previously the BT number checker picked up data for your active service and fed it back as available speed, this doesn't seem to be the case currently as I have a line saying "up to 3M" that syncs at 8128. Sounds like you have a database glitch the other way.
Ed to add: I guess what I'm saying is that there isn't a shorter route, the ISP might be making it up and the TPON overlay will be long back to the exchange and that won't be changed by the reconnection work unless
you're on an exchange boundary and they're connecting to the "other" exchange (Hampton in Peterborough for example is fed from two exchanges) but this seems unlikely TBH.
MaxDSL - goes as fast as it can and doesn't read the line checker first.
