Windows 7 Ultimate X64 SP1

@ShadowJK are you talking about the IP Profile?

I don't know how it works for business (although I would assume it is similar) but how much you pay isn't directly related to your speeds on BT's ADSL. It is sort of indirectly related though, as the people on the 10GB package can't get ADSL2+, but frankly, you probably don't want it if you only have 10GB/month.

The IP profile is not set by how much you pay. It's set by your sync speed. You are right,you do lose roughly a meg from your sync speed, and then another 1/2 meg for overheads. Which is ironic... because BT say the profile is needed for overheads.

It is impossible to actually get 8Mb/s on a MaxDSL connection, as the max profile is 7.15, which caps out at about 6.5Mb/s actual download speed. On 21CN I believe the max sync speed is 23999 or something stupid like that, with 20Mb/s being the top profile, and actual thoroughputs of 19.2 (that's what I get anyway...)

While others can dream of mega speeds with their broadband connections - this is what the government and BT in the UK have come up with

I would loved to have had 20Mb like you but for 10+ years all I could get was 1.5/2.0 Mb and it was only April this year I got a good speed. We are the forgotten people out here in the hills and caves.
There is talk now that soon we may be able to get 80Mb down & 20Mb up so that will double what I get now, so not a bad increase but as I said I've only had good speeds for a few months.

iAmDan-- The reason why people still get low BB speeds in the UK IMO is because how BT looks at how to get a fast return from their out lay and so they install & upgrade exchanges in bit City's & Towns and then when the take up is low they moan about it & it's not rocket science to see that these people already have a fast BB speed & are not interested to pay more for an increase. Yet when they upgrade rural exchange's there is a good take up (FTTC went live for ue in April & our cab is a smaller 1 with only 200 slots, 151 slots were taken up in the first couple of weeks) I rest my case.

boogieboy--- I pay around $42US per month for 40Mb down / 10Mb up so it's not cheap.
