New ADSL Max service

I have recently upgraded my internet access account from a 2mb connection to an 8mb ADSL Max one. The new account is still settling down so Im still on the 2mb download until the equipment in the exchange decides to increase the speed.
My upload speed however has gone from the usual ADSL speed of 30KB/sec to 47KB/sec.
Which is a technical way of saying that I can now ftp a 60mb tiff out to a customer in 21 minutes as opposed to 34 minutes under ordinary ADSL.
The office version of ADSL Max when released should reduce this further to about 12 minutes.
ADSL Max performance is more dependant on distance from the exchange than plain ADSL, however most ISPs are upgrading customers to a max account for free so its worth the price…
