As more users come on more crosstalk occurs and so speeds may reduce. Perhaps it is this resulting in them lowering the estimate (but it is just an estimate and you could get more with a real life connection).

I didn't know they had recently revised any estimates: there was a general revision (almost all downwards) a few months ago.

A recent update to HG612 modem firmware appears to the the reason that quite a few people have had interleaving removed recently: it typically takes DLM a week or more after the upgrade to see the improvement as stable and remove interleaving. That could well be the reason for the ping improvement.

Estimates have certainly recently dropped again. My home estimate has gone from 57 to around 40 and now it's at 33!

I'm currently getting 47/9

Clean - what you can expect if there are no extension wiring affecting the connection, or other things that impact on the VDSL2 performance.

VDSL2 can remotely test for things like extension wiring that is pulling down the speed.

If getting 56 Mbps from speed tests, then that is pretty close to 63 Mbps connection speed, there are IP overheads and protocol overheads on the VDSL2 to take account of so a 63 Mbps sync would have a speed of 60 Mbps if PC were perfect.

In short probably nothing extra to be gained other than a bruised head if you want to pester someone to increase the speeds.
