      ^^^^^^^^
      In addition you are on ADSL2+ which increases the attenuation by about 3 dbs. On G.DMT you would have an attenuation of about 36.5, a good bit lower than the OPs 39.5, who is on G.DMT.

      What benefits do i get from sky Max? Is it just a faster download speed? [:

      Faster upload, possibly slightly faster download and unlimited download amount.

      Ooh, this is tempting.
      And it's only 5 extra than the mid package, isn't it?
      What's an average upload speed for a max user?

      Have you checked your upload on some different testers to try to determine where your problem is? Remember if you are not getting you full potential to your server now, an increase in upload speed is unlikely to make much difference.

      I used the test you linked me, and here are my results;

      We have detected that your ISP is Sky - Your current download speed is 5536Kbps, and your current upload speed is 309Kbps.
