Download speed/times will vary and there is never one fixed/permanent download speed.

The interferance/static is probably causing your 1.5-3.0 so i would wait till its looked and hopefully fixed.

If there are many people downloading a file at once then you will notice a slower download. Nothing you can do apart from downloading in the early morning.

try removing all the phones connected and just plug in the modem by itself and see if speeds improve.do not use extension cables if you can help it.

you may need bt to turn up the juice a bit on your line.
