I've just started with bt broadband and i'm happy with it, i was informed i'd be able to have a maximum speed of 3mb however i find when downloading its incredibly slow, what maintenance checks should i do

In short, there is little you can do to improve it. There are a lot of variables, distance from exchange, time of day, contention rate and also the speed of the servers you are downloading from. The thing to remember it is always 'up to' and not a set speed.
