Well, if it's the same cabling that was giving you 5Mbps with ADSL1+,  
I guess it's one of those "uneconomic to rectify" situations.

There were a few instances in the past where I've had customers report  
a fault on a line, and the NDC/whoever tech inspecting the problem was  
able to solve it by switching to a different pair between the exchange  
and the nearest post.

It's rare that we find people these days prepared to put the effort in.

One of the prices we pay for cheap internet access is cheap service to  
go with it.
