Thanks everyone, for your replies and help with this - very illuminating so glad i asked the question!

You definitely got upgraded to 80/20.

You can't have an upload sync above 10Mb without being on 80/20.

From the stats the DLM has capped your line at 44Mb

Sorry j0hn, just being a bit thick  ??? , the message has gotten through at last.

Not sure if BT support will have a clue about this, I know PlusNet will request a DLM reset on a banded line.

Good luck with getting the banding removed. ;D

Hmm, so next step BT support then, but sounds like it's going to take some time.  If there's anymore advice you folks can throw at me that would be great.

Didn't BT do a 40/20 product a few years back, being basically the 80/20 service capped at half speed download?
I'm sure Plusnet also offered the same package. It was withdrawn in favour of the 40/10 option some time later.
In that case the OP is probably on that legacy package.

No they didn't, but yes Plusnet did.

However it still wasn't a 40/20 syncing product, no such product has ever existed.

Plusnet provisioned those customers on 80/20 and used an IP profile to cap downstream throughput.

What's probably happened here is...

A couple years ago BT upgraded customers on BT Infinity 1 (which was 55/10) to 80/20 for free.
It was discussed in this thread.

The OP's line is definitely 80/20 but DLM has capped the downstream to 44Mb.
