Depends on what the limit is i.e. is it wireless reception that is an issue and the 2.4GHz on the Sky Hub will be subject to more interference than 5GHz devices using 802.11a and 802.11ac

To get the best speeds you have to use an Ethernet cable, and the test at http://www.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest.html can give a better idea of whether its interference issues (wobbly line) or hitting maximum all the time (nice flat line)

Looks like the wireless is performing fine with minimal errors but is just slow.

May be a combination of the device and the Sky hub, e.g. those speeds are just about the maximum you would get from 802.11g rather than 802.11n that the router supports.

The fact Ethernet gives the correct speeds suggests the broadband itself is fine and just he usual game of matching wireless devices with the best access points.

So long as the distance over the mains was not too far then a pair of 500 or better plugs will probably perform better than wireless.

Devolo Home Plugs are the usual preference as they seem to have the correct frequency notches the Duo Starter kit at £49.99 is a fairly good deal currently.

Speedtest.net with its sampling methodology can give higher results, simply because you are getting less slow samples, best to use http://www.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest.html which preserves the graphs of throughput so you can see if a change in the figures is real or just a statistical thing.
