You could get a 2nd line installed.

Do you have any line stats from your router?

Your downstream is going as fast as it can but Sky should be able to double your upstream.

You could consider a router that has QOS which should allow you to reduce the lag - or a move to Plusnet who offer traffic management to do the same thing.

I think Sky's line profile system locks the upstream profile to the downstream profile, so unfortunately it's quite possible the upstream speed can not be made to go faster irrespective of available upstream noise margin.

I guess Sky employed the prima-donnas from Easynet.

UK Online never had these restrictive line profiles, I can only assume Easynet were tasked by Sky to provide a system with restrictive line profiles in order to minimise support costs.
