      You are either on DLM or your line has neen capped.

      Ring Sky and get them to cease the DLM or remove the cap.

      It has been put on ADSL2+, so it could be DLM. Phoning Sky is the only way you will find out.

      You will get your 2Mb back when the training is complete or before that if Sky realise they are training a line which does not need it. Remember that even 1.5Mb is 30 times faster than dial up.
