I'm assuming you've tried ringing them?

If you can get a mate somwhere to setup a iperf server, you might be able to do some iperf tests to "prove" the speed of your connection.

They will ask you a few questions probably, like do you have any firewall software, do you have a wireless device that might be open (other people stealing your 'net) etc

What are you doing to "test" you have only 128k?
