      It looks like they have taken the cap off your line altogether, or raised it well above your possible speed. Now this will be OK as long as your router can handle the changes in the noise margin, but if it can't, your connection will drop and connect at a lower speed. This is what many would prefer as it allows you to handle your own speed. The slightly higher speed you have is down to your lower noise margin. I would guess that your router has been resynced with a high noise margin which gives you the few kbs extra.
