They aren't terrible.

My question is what bandwidth are you paying your ISP for?

What I mean is, I pay for "upto" 20Mbps so I get pretty close to that (I get roughly 18 down, 1 up). If I was getting the same speed as you, i'd be annoyed.

Could be worse I suppose :) could also be a lot better!

A lot of homes around my county are getting FTTH/FTTC, which i'll never see (thanks Openreach!). Check out some of the bandwidths you can get:

thinkbroadband :: Fibre Broadband (FTTC / FTTH) Guide

Hypersonic - 1Gbps up/down, unlimited usage. Yes please.

[SOLVED] Speedtest.net Vs Bresnan Speedtest Different Speeds?!?!
