      That is about it speed wise with your current setup, you could try the test socket to be sure you are getting the most from it.

      It looks like DLM has just started on your line, you may get a bit more, especially upstream, so keep your router plugged in and powered up until the line training completes. With a good line you should get 12-14Mb. As suggested, if you have telephone extensions wired to your master socket, try the Test socket, internal wiring can have a bad effect on ADSL.

      You are at the default noise margin which means you can get no more. Did you try the Test socket as suggested?

      Your noise margin is below the default which means you are already getting a bit more than the line can handle and still be stable. You should be OK as long as it does not continue to fall.
