Well last night funny things happened,could not download at all. Turned off router and restarted. Lo and behold I am now connected to ADSL2+ and sync. has gone up from 7616 to 10188.
OK not as fast as some and Demon may not be the cheapest but I have to say their service has been excellent up to the present. So thanks for free upgrade and the 1 meg download rate. It would have been nice to get some warning though.
