Just open up the main junction again, cut the bell wire short, made sure conections were nice and I am back up to 3.6Mbps - just about enough for iPlayer in HD. Result.

Teddy I think is something that is local to the UK . BT had the monopoly here and set up the standard for all equipment that is still used today . The US had a much more enlightened and commercial set up with many companies having networks and each having there own units and connectors . I do not think your socket boxes are four wired like all UK ones .

Here we used to very effected by how wet the weather had been, water was getting into a junction box on a telegraph pole. They had to rewire and renew some kit. I am in a town and the best I have ever seen is 1.6Mbps, which was for the last year or so (after they rewired) until a week ago when it dropped to 1.2 Mbps. I monitor continuously with a plugin and am pretty disappointed to see how far we lag behind...
