Can you check the speed you are getting on the Xbox.
You may have some malware running on your PC which is slowing you down. You could download and run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com.
Aslo you could close down all but one browser window, open an elevated Command Prompt* type netstat -b hit enter. This will show you everything that is using your connection. Make sure you recognise everything.
*Windows key, type com and press Ctrl+Shift+Enter, accept UAC.

One thing that can slow your connection if you have it is versions of iPlayer which use P2P. The Sky Player can run and use your connection without your permission or knowledge. It will be shown as kontiki or kservice.

Is your speed still low after removing the trojan?
You could try downloading and running Internet Software this will show what is happening with your Noise Margin and may give a clue to your problem.

I ran another test last night and was running on just under 2mb.
The noise margin is staying quite steady on around 8, and the connection speed is doing the same.

I've noticed that since 12 the noise margin has started jumping up and down a lot and i was just disconnected then, could it be something to do with this?

Yes, you may have some sort of interference which is causing noise on the line. Have a look around your house for anything that may cause it, like microwaves, CH switching on etc,
