I called AOL Tech Support to ask about the upload speed, I was told that whilst we have AOL Talk and AOL Broadband, because our line is provided by BT, I have to contact them about the upload speed. AOL say they are only responsible for the downsteam speed.
I expressed surprise and was told that it was because AOL were providing broadband over BT's line.
For starters, there are two settings available to AOL, "up to 448kbps" and "up to 832kbps" on ADSL. The old Max and Max Premium. Not all ISPs supplied the higher one, and AOL may be one of those, but they are certainly responsible for everything to do with the broadband.
440kbps is a common one for Plusnet customers on the up to 448 option.
On ADSL2+ you should get well over 1000kbps.
