Update: there's a new provider in the house, and he offers 100 Mbps plans cheaper than the original provider's 25/5 Mbps plan. So I've switched. The new provider is less reliable (I've never measured the full 100 Mbps with him, while I've always measured the nominal values with the previous one) and in particular has worse connection abroad, but my upload to the office server improved dramatically (on average, at least), which was most important to me.
This is the best result I've measured so far (slightly after midnight on a workday.... ):
My office is really bad. It is an old facility and we think the problem is internal ... Corporate won't rewire it. When we ( IT Department ) need to download anything big like a CD image we either do it at home or start the download on a spare machine and leave it alone for 2 - 3 hours.
