      When were you activated? If it is recent, it is probably DLM at work. Post the stats from you router. Speed tests on there own mean nothing.

      all new connections go thorugh a training in period (read your welcome letter, it's on there) and over the first 10 days of connection your speed will fluctuate while it guages the best the line can (apparently) give...you're also on adsl2+ which might not be the best line code for your line...

      and with that attenuation, there's no way you ever had 16Mbps...pretty much physically impossible!!...

      Yes you may have seen 6Mb, but never 16. When your line has trained you may get 6-7Mb. Make sure your internal wiring is OK by following the advice in the Cabling and Faceplate section of the forum.

      Don't believe the speed test sites, they are all over the place, you did not get that speed.

      Woth those stats 6-7mb is the best you can hope for.
