      You really need to compare stats from the master socket(test socket if NTE5) to the new extension to see if it has made any difference.

      You are getting the maximum speed for Everyday with a good noise margin. Unless you intend upgrading to Unlimited, you are absolutely fine.

      You could possibly get 13-15Mb, try taking your stats from the Test socket, for a better idea.

      Not a lot of difference, but you should still get 2 or 3 Mb, maybe more. It would be worth your while upgrading, especially if you can use the unlimited bandwidth allowance. Plus there are some perks with SkyPlayer if you use it.
