Thanks for replying, how come their upload is fine, I live in a semi-detached and my home hub is a long way from them.
Can you check BT Wholesale are checking my address and phone number, I keep getting calls to my number claiming my name is a Mr Ja***on (or similar) Cheveral Avenue Coventry which is annoying to say the least. I work in IT myself and I dont think there is a problem at my end or my neighbours, Surely my download would be similarly affected, the line test is fine, it never ever goes over 448k upload, its always hovering around there which are ADSL max speeds.
Its just upload not download, please help.

Dont you find it odd I cant go over 448k?
I have even gone around the house with a MW radio at 600mhz to see what might be interfering.
How can it be interference if there is nothing to interfere?

The thing is I have had engineers out and they say the line is fine, last time I had to pay £129 because they couldnt find a fault.
The last engineer said my upload was being managed by my profile, he changed all that he could at the exchange, my cables and faceplate. My neighbours cables go down the same hole as mine to the exchange and they get a lot more than me, I still find it odd it never ever goes over 448k.
I have a Draytek I can use, I might be able to get a HH5, can you tell me what would information might help you get me over 448K from a HH5, you say a HH4 or 6 doesnt give you that.
I wonder if my old phone number is being used for upload while my current one is for download.
Without getting an engineer out again and having to pay another £129 to find no fault is there any other possibility?
Its that 448k thats making me think its BT's end, it should go higher than that on a good day???
