Upload speed - Worth formal complaint?

I'm aware that BT offer no guarantee on upload speeds. BT's technical support repeatedly say nothing is wrong.  My "speed" evidence must be skewed since it will contain pre and post broadband fault tests. In the past 4 years the overhead service to the house and all wiring to the Mk3 faceplate (hub connection) has been replaced free of charge by Openreach. Last Openreach visit 6/8/2020, total loss of broadband reported but the fault relayed to the engineer as "noise on line" who then found a faulty port in the cabinet. 

Will I be wasting my time making a formal complaint about my upload speed on the following grounds? The speed differences below may be small in Mbps but as a percentage they are huge. 

Today https://speedtest.btwholesale.com/ shows my upload speed as 1.62Mbps. (why is the upload  IP profile set at 10Mbps ?) Ookla's Speedtest.net holds 347 of my tests going back to 2015. The maximum speed  is 2.79 in Nov 2017.

These are tests for this month

From 2015 download speeds  around 2.3 to 2.5 are the norm but for 2020  only in April and January has it crept over 2 (2.07).
