Both the attenuation and S/N indicate an attainable rate more like 6-7Mb/s should be possible.  Because the S/N is not too bad I suggest you look at possible stub issues, ie lengths of unterminated cable either in your local loop of your premise wiring that could be causing issues.

Have you tired disconnecting all house wiring as close as possible to the demarc and seeing what speeds you get there.

Actually I just ditched IHUG and switch over to Xnet and thought it's Xnet network issue?

With Ihug I get around ~6500 down stream. They have yet to contact me regarding my ADSL activation which they said they would.
I just use it since my modem have the dsl activaton light on. I will definitely ask them when my contract arrive via snail mail.
I don't even know what my account number is? Strangely the sale person should have given it to me when I signed on!

Anything related to the speed of the connection between your place and your local  exchange/cabinet is a Telecom issue, not one related to your ISP. Any speed restriction they (ISP) place is well back in the system, however the sync speed is purely related to your line and your potential to the network regardless of your ISP.

Dont hold your breath - Ihug is useless for letting you know whats happening - EVEN when they say they will!
