      You have a long line and are getting just about the maximum your current setup will allow.

      Are these stats from the test socket? if they are I don't think you will get any more speed (maybe a bit of upload when the new profiles are ran out).

      If these are not from the test socket can you post them from there aswell?

      If it is not wireless, then there is a good chance the PC(s) are riddled with trojans or P2P software is running permanently.

      If you are using wireless try changing the router's wireless channel.
