Even with these figures, I got 1.5Mbps on BT ADSLMax with interleaving turned off by my previous ISP at my request - my current figures are with interleaving enabled.
I would be looking to see if you can improve things locally.

You really only need the wires in 2 and 5
The other one should be orange / white or white / orange if wired up correctly.
If you can remove the 3rd wire you may have cracked it. If you remove it and it improves you have cracked it.
If you remove it and nothing improves, then you have lost nothing. However be very careful as if one of the other wires fall out of the grip type thingy you could stop your phone extensions working.
If one does fall out, you can easily replace it using a krone tool, I believe B and Q sell them as well.
Good luck and if you are unsure then do not attempt to do what I have said.
