Slow DSL Speed

Been having slow internet access the past two days and ran a speed test today (results below).  I am supposedly on a 1.2MB - 3MB plan but it doesn't appear I'm getting that.  Am I reading these results correctly and assuming there's an issue?

#1 Please post your Transceiver Status from your modem.

#2 If you don't know how to get them:

a) What is the brand and model of your modem?

b) If you have a seperate router: What is the brand and model of it?

#3 Visit and post up the Traceroute the page shows, if you wish. Be aware that the final hop (bottom-most line of the trace) will contain a hop with your IP address in it. Remove that line. What I'm looking for is a line that mentions "ERX" in it's name towards the end. If for some reason the trace does not complete (two lines full of Stars), keep the trace route intact.
