I have recently had my services installed which overall I am very happy with. However my upload speed seems to be consistently slower than my old ADSL. On speedtest.net I always get 0.55 mbps no matter what the time of day. I was expecting this to be about 1mbps. Just wondering if anyone has any clues as to why this is a bit slow.
I'm including my tracert results and my hub settings. As this is an upload query I have not included my download test results.

VM are currently upgrading upload speeds, you can check if your area has been upgraded. When I was on 20mb package the advertised (pre Upgrade) upload speed was 750kb/s (never got close) so 055mb/s sounds about right. You can check your area Here.
Could you post your modem power levels and modulation so they can be checked as per Mark's sticky at the top of the forum.

Ah yes, thanks guys I have just found the upgrade schedule. Sorry I hadn't already got this far. To be fair I'm not too unhappy with 0.5mbps as long as it gets upgraded in the future some time.
Here are all my hub settings as requested :

Yep all stable at 54 - thanks guys. And to be honest the connection is a lot more stable and faster for PS3 gaming than my old adsl was with higher upload speeds.
