Don't feel too bad about it, at least you can troubleshoot, diagnose the problem and emplace a workaround. My ISP here in germany uses a slightly different technique for DSL. I like to refer to it as randomized unfair queueing:-) It works something like this.
1. You sign up for service.
2. They turn service on at rated speed (in my case 1.5Mbps).
3. They let it run a month or three at rated speed.
4. They sign on new customers (not you of course).
5. They sign on new customers at rated speed (whatever that is).
6. Network congestion occurs at the upstream connection beyond the DSLAM.
7. Rate/bandwidth limiters get placed on existing customers.
8. Some customers complain.
9. Complaining customers *magically* see download speeds increase.
10. Non-complaining customers deal with slower speeds as a matter of Internet life.
