      It looks like DLM has kicked in and capped you at a very low speed. Call Sky and ask them to reconfigure your line. It is possible your line has developed a fault as your attenuation has jumped up to 77dbs from 74. You might ask them if they can try your line on G.DMT, it may work better than ADSL2+.

      If he is with Sky, the advice in my post no. 2 still stands. If he has another ISP, then he should contact them.
