Basically my cable is in 2 sections.....first section starts at pole in street..that goes to a splitter box on the side of my house..then the 2nd section comes also from the splitter box to inside my house (hall) thats were my mk3 master socket is...
I don't think it's necessarily a 'splitter' box, more likely just the normal termination box that is on the side of most houses? I assume that if Openreach fed as single section all the way from the pole to the master socket inside the house that would make future maintenance/replacement much more difficult. It sounds to me as though you have the standard set up, though I'm no telecomms engineer.
As already mentioned, you just need to leave the modem-router on 24/7 for two or three weeks and let the Dynamic Line Management do it's job. See if the noise margin drops to the target of 6dB and see if the sync rate increases. If it stays below the quoted minimum then you would need to follow it up with BT again.
your max attainable speed will fluctuate all the time - mine does but as long as my actual stays the same then that's what counts. Now my line is stable and has been apart from the 14 day resets the noise margin also fluctuates but only +/- 0.3db. again as long as this does not impact on my conenction speed then I am not concerned
you now need to let your line stabilise and if you can maintain a stable connection then DLM will reduce your noise margin with target being 'normal' 6db and this in turn will increase your actual connection speed - your attainable will stay about the same
your attainable will stay about the same <<< what do u mean ? im currently downloading at 25mb..have been solidly for about two weeks...even yesterday,after half my cable was replaced im still downloading at 25mb.....in january i was downloading at 29mb constantly for weeks..until noise come on my line...then disconections etc...dragged my speed to 25...my ftcc says min 27,4 max 36.....here are my current stats..my data rate has stayed at 26211 for weeks...but since half my cable was changed yesterday..the max data rate has gone a lot higher its now 36505 is there a chance my download speed may go above 30mb ? if my line stabalises or are u telling me 26mb will be my max ? cos if 26mb is going to be my max..ill be contacting bt again...

I have had a bt phone line for over 40 years....but only got broadband..infinity 1 for the first time in january..so this is all new to me..all id like to know is..after reading my posts..and looking at todays stats...do u think my download speed will eventually increase from 25mb ? thanks
Serious question, why this obsession with your speed? Unless you are downloading huge files on a regular basis or streaming multiple HD films simultaneously, you will not notice any difference between 25M and 36M in day to day use.
your download has not changed because your actual connection speed has not changed- untill your noise margin reduces and your connection speed moves nearer your attainable your download speed will stay the same
what I said was your attainable will fluctuate with line conditions but your current connection speed will stay the same provided you maintain a stable connection the DLM will reduce your noise margin which will increase your actual connection speed which in turn will give a higher profile and therefore a faster download speed
you just have to wait and hope conenction remains stable after engineer fixed your conenction
