This may not be the exact figure but it's something like £115 for the first hour then £65 an hour after that.
From what you've described it would be a doddle to improve things yourself.

I only have 1 set of cables to my main socket which does feed 2 extensions. The 1 set of cables is then 'split' off at a further hidden point under my upstairs flooring using a splitter box, so it is reasonable to only have 1 set of extension wiring at the master socket which feeds multiple extension sockets.

I think FibreOptic said that there was only one pair of wires in his socket, not one pair in and one pair out - but maybe I misread/misunderstood his earlier posts.
If he has a pair out from his master socket which are then split then he should fit his new socket somewhere between the existing socket and the splitter. If he has a splitter which then goes to two sockets he should fit his new socket immediately after the splitter and run the two extensions from it.

Well got off the phone with this nice chappy called Jamie in Tier3 and am I glad I spoke to him!
He tried several time tweaking resetting the connection and then after 30mins of checking we decided it was best to cap it at 8096kbps! Im not really fussed, Still have my telewest!
Seems this is an issue with the contention, As when I connected I was on my own! I had the whole Sky Redditch LLU to myself, Since then 300 Users have been connected!
So what can I say!
Some details for ya!

Hmm interesting. Hope my speed doesn't drop as much as yours did due to contention! My exchange is supposedly one of the most 'cramped' exchanges in the UK with 40,775 residential premises and 2,016 non-residential premises.
Also, according to the availability checker on the Sky BB website you can no longer get the Base mid or max in my area due to too much popularity!
Oh well only time will tell.
