I would not bother too much about how much you use, the system Sky have in place now should upgrade you if your usage exceeds the allocation. If their system does not allow upgrading, that is their tough luck, they can hardly blame you if there system is faulty.

      When your line is reconfigured you will not get any more speed than you do on Everyday. To get any speed improvement, you have to be getting the maximum possible for your present package, you are not even close to that. Your line is too long.
      When you mean line is too long, do you mean from my house to the exchange, because i checked and its 1.22 miles from the exchange, is that too far?

      Your house may be 1.22 miles, but the actual line length could be double or more that length. To get any increase in speed your attenuation would have to be in the low 30s at least, yours is in the high 40s. There have been cases where a fault on the line increases the attenuation, but this does not happen often and unless you have a lot of noise on your voice line, is unlikely in your case.
