      The only way is to move closer to the exchange.

      Remember you are paying for UPTO 20mb speeds, there are a lot of people getting half your speed on the same package, the speed is related to distance from the exchange and line condition.

      You can always try the test socket to see if the noise margin increases, which would mean more speed to you.

      Maybe, the less wiring between the router and the socket, the better. Post your stats.
