I recently had BT Infinity 2 installed (Monday Jan 20th). My estimated speed at sign up was 70 - 80 Mbps, but my current download speed is around 57 Mbps with an IP Profile 58.82 Mbps.
I noticed that above my front door, there is a small box that links the outside line to the inside of the flat. I unscrewed the cover and noticed it looks really nasty in there. I have taken 2 photos of it and I am wondering can this be the reason why I am ~13 Mbps off my estimate?
You can notice some of the wires coming from the outside line (on the left) are exposed and twisted.
Do you think I could see an increase in speed/sync speed if I got rid of this box? And how would I go about doing it? (whats the cleanest way?).
Here are some stats off the modem as well:
6. Data rate: 16988 / 60770
7. Maximum data rate: 16951 / 60258
8. Noise margin: 5.8 / 6.4 (Is the noise level acceptable? Or is below 6 bad)
9. Line attenuation: 0.0 / 14.8
10. Signal attenuation: 0.0 / 15.0
Here's some photos of the box:

Thanks for any help!
