I do remember at least up to 4 years ago that you could ask BT to change the "line gain".
This would help improve dialup modem connections.
I guess BT can still do this, but not sure what it means to ADSL though, sorry.A simple crude speed test:-

I has this done years ago when I was on dialup and it improved dialup immensely, could that line gain change still be on my line and be causing me issues on my line with Broadband, can I ask BT to reset the gain to normal levels?

There is no gain control for the ADSL signal. The signal is automatically transmitted at the right power for the line conditions. The audio gain for voice can be turned up and down like the volume control but it has no influence on ADSL.
