That's a bit of a difficult question, as some of us get very similar results from the two, others get big differences like you describe.
What might help, and might also help us improve your connection a bit, would be if you can give us a bit more information, as below:-
Please run a test using www.speedtest.net
and post the link that gives to share the result. That will tell us what underlying ISP 24Talk are using, as they may just be a reseller.
And see if your router is listed here
. If it is, try to follow the instructions and copy/paste the stats you get out. But if that looks difficult, or it isn't listed, tell us what it is and we'll see if there's an easier way.
Have you got a phone socket that has a split front, where the bottom half looks like it will come of if two screws are removed? So it would look the one on the left here
? If you have, is that the one you use for the broadband, without a plug-in extension cable? Just the ADSL cable that came with your router.
