Speed drops from 5-6Mbps to 500k at peak times

I am on a small exchange (SWXSX) with about 500 lines.


Most users are very near to the exchange. We are about 1.5 miles away.


At peak times our speed drops from 5-6Mbps to 500k and VoIP quality degrades. On Bank Hoilday Monday a large download repeatedly dropped out. In the end 443MB took 3 hours to download.


My impression is that the back haul is overloaded. What are the plans to fix this problem for small exchanges? When can I expect a reliable >2Mbps service?
