Thanks very much for replies.
Im testing with computer connected by Ethernet to router.
Just done a speedtest now and this is usually what I get at off peak.
and the router stats are
ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
Connection Speed 4077 kbps 784 kbps
Line Attenuation 53 db 16.5 db
Noise Margin 9 db 8 db
This should be my normal speed most of the time, I don't mind maybe going down to 1 mbit download at peaks time but to reduce my speed to under 0.3 MBPS probably because of congestion at the local exchange and tell me when I do a speedtest that it is pretty good is really taking the [censored].
I do get my phone and broadband from Talktalk for next to nothing to be honest £18 for DSL + anytime calls interational calls+ value line rental included but its so frustrating in the end not even able to watch a video online and I just ask myself is it really worth it.
I would imagine Talktalks 's business model for a particular exchange is just to keep signing people up. Its unbundled where I live.
Thanks again for the very helpful advice.
