      You should be able to get nearer the 20 Mb. Plug into your Test socket and post your stats from there.

      Forget the speedtest site, it is hit and miss at best.

      Have you tried the TEST socket yet?How to test your ADSL in the Master Socket

      Post your stats from there, the lower the attenuation the better.

      Are you trying to teach your granny how to suck eggs?

      The point I was making is that you have a 17Mb connection and you are much further from the exchange that the OP so he has every chance of getting 20Mb.
