Hoping that we can, along with your help, find out what the hell is wrong with orange home broadbad (again!)

For the last 10-14 days, the line sync speed has been around 5-6mb, it for the last 7days has show as above stats, around the 7mb mark, sometimes 7.5mb-8mb!
BUT, the actual download is ranging from 0.5-0.9mb, upload is standard slow "upto" 448 range.
Have tried 2 new Liveboxes (1 refurb & 1 new) 1 new Netgear 1000sp, removing everything (including a corded phone) from the BT socket, leaving the box after ORANGE L1 TS reset the profile, contacted Orange PSTN dept who have run a "line test" for noise, speed, yadayada! (with no issues found) yet the DL is STILL less than 0.5mb...
Can someone, please, please explain how the hell this can happen? We have been having issues with Orange since day dot, but due to the massive amount of use on the 2nd line to free mobiles & international calls, have stuck with them, even after 3 years of "oh its your router" or "oh its a leaf on the phone line" and every other scripted answer you can expect!
Have spent hours and hours on the phone, trying to get something done as far as BT line check (only thing I can think of!) to see if even though Orange say there is not an issue, there is!
ANY ideas, anyone (including the forums new Orange CS poster!) what it can be... seriously either need to solve it, or find out if it is Orange playing "DIRTY" to get all the 2nd line owners pi55ed off enough to move onto the NEW type of inclusive call package, before they cut the service off soon anyway!
